Our summer of Nobel Prize winners continues with a rare conversation with South African novelist, J.M. Coetzee, an elegant, disturbing, and provocative writer. In announcing that he had won the 2003 Nobel Prize for Literature, the Swedish Academy praised his ability to write fiction that "in innumerable guises portrays the surprising involvement of the outsider." His 1999 novel, Disgrace won both the Booker (his second), and the Commonwealth Prize.
J.M. Coetzee's latest book is the third of his fictionalized memoirs; it's called Summertime.
