Synopsis: Two stories deal with an investigation into psychological warfare in Vietnam and an eighteenth century conflict between Dutch settlers in southern Africa and the native Hottentots

About the Author: Born in Cape Town, South Africa, on February 9, 1940, John Michael Coetzee studied first at Cape Town and later at the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a Ph.D. degree in literature. In 1972 he returned to South Africa and joined the faculty of the University of Cape Town. His works of fiction include Dusklands, Waiting for the Barbarians, which won South Africas highest literary honor, the Central News Agency Literary Award, and the Life and Times of Michael K., for which Coetzee was awarded his first Booker Prize in 1983. He has also published a memoir, Boyhood: Scenes From a Provincial Life, and several essays collections. He has won many other literary prizes including the Lannan Award for Fiction, the Jerusalem Prize and The Irish Times International Fiction Prize. In 1999 he again won Britains prestigious Booker Prize for Disgrace, becoming the first author to win the award twice in its 31-year history. In 2003, Coetzee was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Mails from NYC usually within 12 hours.; 134 pages; Two novellas. In the first a specialist in psychological warfare is driven to murderous action by the stresses of a macabre project to win the Vietnam War. In the second, a megalomaniac 18th-century Boer frontiersman in the wreaks hideous vengeance on a Hottentot tribe. (Kirkus UK)Product DescriptionIn these two novellas he distils the absurdity and horror of scientific evangelism and heroic exploration united in a terrible marriage of destruction. By the author of "Life and Times of Michael K" winner of the Booker Prize. Find a copy!, June 28, 2002 By marsha olsen (Machias, ME) - This slim volume contains two superficially discreet narratives. Coetzee is once again brilliant. His form here is slightly experimental, and the prose does not display quite the crystalline exactitude found in "Disgrace", "Waiting for the Barbarians", "Age of Iron", or "The Life and Times of Michael K". Here he works in a softer vein, more like "Foe" or "In the Heart of the Country".The content is classic Coetzee. Unflinching. Sometimes his clarity and realism lead me towards existential despair. But to emerge from any of his works is to emerge stronger, emboldened by the power of the brutally honest and righteous. This book might be about passion and compassion. It is definitely an examination of human psychology, specifically how it is formed, informed, reformed, and deformed by fascistic social/political structures."Dusklands" is a fascinating read. It illuminates another facet (or two) of the human condition. It is deceptively quick light reading. Subtly profound while intellectually massive, it is a delicate jackhammer. It is so good, and so right, that it is out of print. Do what it takes to find a copy. Seller Inventory # 22566
