Waiting for the Barbarians

Tags:  general-fiction, favorite-fiction,

I’ve read a number of Coetzee’s books, and this one is my favorite. It’s been a few years since I read it, but it made quite an impact. It’s not quite as dark as Disgrace. I haven’t read every book out there, but among the ones I’ve read, this and John Williams' Stoner are the two best novels of the late 20th century.

Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee

This is another one I need to re-read. Someday, I’ll write a proper review.
