Heila "J.M. Coetzee's Summertime. It is such a remarkably honest and very funny book, a sort of faux-memoir which at the same time contains a great deal of truth. Coetzee writes of himself in the third person (he is supposed to be dead in this book), and a biographer interviews five people, four of them women who tell him about the writer, Coetzee. Their comments are often remarkably unflattering but contain, we sense, in a wonderfully playful and imaginative way some truth.''

-- SHEILA KOHLER, author of Becoming Jane Eyre
