It’s about post apartheid South Africa, Coetzee’s home country. The use of the phrase ‘political correctness’ in degracia summary, right there at the forefront of what countless use to determine whether they will read this book or not, says that plainly. I really didn’t know what to do in this situation.

David Lurie doesn’t save the dogs, any more than I saved the dead cat.

We are born, we die. Sudhir Saha Its an amazing book. It is the role she has adopted for herself, the price she has decided she has to pay for being a white woman living in the South African countryside.


A breath of fresh air, in a convoluted, reflexive sense of the phrase. A history of personal abuse, but if Melanie was black then perhaps what David refers to is his own history as well. But I wasn’t a judgmental, obnoxious vegan, I don’t think.


I’ve also been historically opposed — for reasons I might get into below — to sentimentality about domesticated animals. A fierce, intelligent book so deep, dark and delightful I would need to write one of those exhaustive reviews I usually skim-read or cpetzee for paragraph breaks to do it justice.

Disgrace hits like a sledgehammer, but results in a catharsis that one doesn’t forget lightly.

Jul 24, She-Who-Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: As I found Foeso I find this: She has a duty to share it. Like a flower blooming in his breast, his heart floods with thankfulness. Es A savage, ruthless book.

The young in one another’s arms heedless, engrossed in the sensual music.

And he reels me in. But that would be a pity, for you would be deprived of an experience that will only enrich your understanding of the world.

I have been a disgrace, been disgraced, disgraced myself and others.

What really disturbed me then, and still does, desgracoa that it hadn’t even crossed my mind to bury the dead cat until other people suggested that that’s what I should do. Later, David’s daughter refuses to report her rape.


Si tratta, infatti, di quel poeta che scelse l’auto-esilio dopo aver dato scandalo con una sfrenata condotta sessuale. Or does he refer to life? However, when Lurie seduces one of his students, he sets in motion a chain of events that will shatter his complacency and leave him utterly disgraced. Instead, she loses herself, laying down in submission, much like a dog undergoing euthanasia.

But talent rarely hails from Planet Obvious and Coetzee, a talented writer he is, knows very well what it takes to write a good book. Perhaps, as one of the characters thinks, it is necessary, in order to build something up, for everything to be first brought down to nothing. I can’t really say what I mean beyond that, but I think Coetzee says it for me in this book.
