a literary biography of south africa’s

At times I think a biography should be written when the bios of the person has ended. But is not easy for writers to wait, to collect material, to interview the person and friends and relatives and wait till time has run its course.

J.M. Coetzee is still very much alive, his bios continues, but David Attwell has decided to write a biography.

this is another book on J.M. Coetzee, with a similar title.
