About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'Coetzee is a master we scarcely deserve.' Age 'All [the stories are] impeccably crafted and a joy to read, with the book itself beautifully presented in duck egg blue and inlaid gold too.' New Daily 'For all the sharpness and sorrow of Coetzee's writing, there is something grandly calming about his style: his sentences seem to give off light, and not in a hard dazzle, but in the glow of a child's night-light.' Age/Sydney Morning Herald 'From the opening chapter I had that hard-to-pin-down sense that I was in the presence of a masterpiece.' Australian on The Childhood of Jesus 'A Kafka-inspired parable of the quest for meaning itself.' New York Times Book Review on The Childhood of Jesus 'Beautiful but enigmatic fable, written in clean, fierce, present tense prose, seems set in some sort of afterlife...insistently memorable in its spare evocations, it leaves the reader charmed, intrigued, impressed and curious, with much compulsively to ponder.' Adelaide Advertiser on The Childhood of Jesus '[A] quiet, haunting novel...Coetzee's calm, emblematic prose lifts the plot into something redolent with metaphor and mystery...Any statement can become a symbol; every event is suffused with potential revelation; something magical is always present and just out of reach...It's a memorable accomplishment, turning the everyday into the almost everlasting.' Weekend Herald (NZ) on The Childhood of Jesus 'The Childhood of Jesus represents a return to the allegorical mode that made him famous...a Kafkaesque version of the nativity story...The Childhood of Jesus does ample justice to his giant reputation: it's richly enigmatic, with regular flashes of Coetzee's piercing intelligence.' Guardian 'A breathtaking performance, full of the tears in things and the wonders of which we cannot speak.' -- Peter Craven Sydney Review of Books on The Childhood of Jesus 'Coetzee's beautiful prose is always a model of sensitivity and cohesion and is a window into the oddities of human behaviour. He has the gift of drawing the reader right, setting the atmosphere and depicting believable characters. Coetzee's stories flow seamlessly and gracefully.' Toowoomba Chronicle 'Coetzee's strength as a writer is such that each of the stories is engaging, thought-provoking and highly readable.' West Australian
