Review:

"A strong and memorable novel" ( Guardian)

"It strikes deep inside the heart...The story is clean, clear, straight, the work of a mature imagination at full power...here is a book that will be celebrated for a long time" ( Mail on Sunday)

"This is a trule astonishing novel... I finished Life & Times of Michael K in a state of elation, for all the misery and suffering it contains. I cannot recommend it highly enough" ( Evening Standard)

"Beautifully written in a strong, plain, unpretentious style...distinguished by grim humour and powerful understatement" ( Sunday Express)

"The quality of Coetzee's writing lies in his inner vision: dark, passionately compassionate, concerned with the nature of man" ( Financial Times)

WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE 2003
