Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[A] sober, searing and even cynical little book....DISGRACE is Coetzee's first book to deal explicitly with post-apartheid South Africa, and the picture it paints is a cheerless one that will comfort no one, no matter what race, nationality or viewpoint....There is something fundamentally cryptic and unsummarizable about DISGRACE, but I read it as an almost metaphysical journey from this Romantic variety of love to the harsher, leaner strain David eventually learns from life on and around Lucy's farm.

Andrew O'Hehir, Salon, 11/05/1999

Review:

"[A] novel that not only works its spell but makes it impossible for us to lay it down once we've finished reading it--that makes demands upon us not by virtue of a self-conscious 'message' but by virtue of a narrative momentum that is itself expressive of moral urgency. Coetzee is the most cerebral and, with the exception of Breyten Breytenbach, the least given to sentimentality of the talented novelist to have come out of South Africa. He writes with a dark, compacted intelligence...."

Daphne Merkin, New Yorker, 11/15/1999
