Finished Coetzee's Disgrace recently. A sparse, vivid novel where a haphazard slice of things happen slow enough they can be hard to see. Ambitious scope, delivered in a measured way.


  1. I liked Disgrace a lot, but I think Elizabeth Costello was even better.

  2. I'll have to take a look.

    Although this isn't saying anything, the Amazon reviews range from "an overly cerebral, boring mess" to "Great Payoff for Minimal Investment".

    I want a novel with excellent ROI.
