Product Description:

J.M. Coetzee is one of the world's most intriguing authors. Compelling razor-sharp erudite: the adjectives pile up but the heart of the fiction remains elusive. Now in J.M. Coetzee and the Life of Writing David Attwell explores the extraordinary creative processes behind Coetzee's novels from Dusklands to The Childhood of Jesus. Using Coetzee's manuscripts notebooks and research papers-recently deposited at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas at Austin-Attwell produces a fascinating story. He shows convincingly that Coetzee's work is strongly autobiographical the memoirs being continuous with the fictions and that his writing proceeds with never-ending self-reflection. Having worked closely with him on Doubling the Point: Essays and Interviews and given early access to Coetzee's archive David Attwell is an engaging authoritative source. J. M. Coetzee and the Life of Writing is a fresh fascinating take on one of the most important and opaque literary figures of our time. This moving account will change the way Coetzee is read by teachers critics and general readers.
