To date, I have only read his "Disgrace". And I recommend it.
Sometimes this prize is awarded to some obscure poet you have never heard of and will never hear of again, but I feel this was a very good choice.
Anybody read anything by Coetzee?

I took out "Disgrace" again and flipped though it re-reading passages, Yeah, the guy is great, his compassion!
I have always wanted to be a truly compassionate being (not sentimental, may God preserve me), but here I understand I have a lot to learn although I think I am on the right path.
For once, the Swedish Academy has not goofed - sad to say, they have in the past...
