9780099581536: The Childhood of Jesus

An astonishing new masterpiece from the Nobel and twice Booker Prize-winning author of Disgrace and Summertime

After crossing oceans, a man and a boy - both strangers to each other - arrive in a new land. David, the boy, has lost his mother and Simón vows to look after him. In this strange new country they are assigned a new name, a new birthday, a new life.

Knowing nothing of their surroundings, nor the language or customs, they are determined to find David's mother. Though the boy has no memory of her, Simón is certain he will recognize her at first sight. "But after we find her," David asks, "what are we here for?"

The Childhood of Jesus is a profound, beautiful and continually surprising novel from a very great writer.

Review:

"Allegorical, faintly biblical" (Sarah Sands Evening Standard)

"As ever, JM Coetzee manages to dodge every category with mesmeric cunning... This limpid, gnomic and surprisingly witty tale will take root in your imagination’" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"There are lots of traditions and tales mixed in – along with mathematics and a wonderfully poetic use of language" ( Financial Times)

"Richly enigmatic, with regular flashes of Coetzee's piercing intelligence" (Theo Tait Guardian)

"Engaging and thoughtful" (Theo Hobson Tablet)

Book Description:

The mysterious, masterful new novel from J.M. Coetzee, twice winner of the Booker Prize and winner of the Nobel Prize
