From the Inside Flap:

A superb collection of essays by one of the world?s great novelists.

This volume gathers together for the first time in book form twenty-nine pieces on books, writing, photography and the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa. The subjects range from the great 18th- and 19th-century writers Daniel Defoe, Samuel Richardson and Ivan Turgenev, to the great German modernists Rilke, Kafka and Musil, to the giants of late 20th-century literature, among them Harry Mulisch, Joseph Brodsky, Jorge Luis Borges, Salman Rushdie, Amos Oz, Naguib Mahfouz, Nadine Gordimer and Doris Lessing.

From the Back Cover:

“Coetzee is one of the greatest writers of our time.” – Los Angeles Times

“One of the the best novelists alive.” – Sunday Times

“J.M. Coetzee’s vision goes to the nerve-centre of being. What he finds there is more than most people will ever know about themselves.” – Nadine Gordimer
