Disgrace by James Coetzee


This book won the Booker Prize, and this author has won numerous awards. He's from South Africa where this story takes place. It's a story of disgrace, obviously. It's not a happy story in any way but it sure does make a person think. I read this book two years ago and I still think about it often. I did like it because it is well written. It is about politics, ethics, violence, exile, and disgrace.

It is John Coetzee, not James, i.e. John Maxwell Coetzee.
