Stranger Shores: Literary Essays 1986-1999

J. M. Coetzee, Author Viking Books $24.95 (295p) ISBN 978-0-670-89982-1
Tackling works by Rushdie, Naguib Mahfouz, Doris Lessing, Borges and A.S. Byatt, Stranger Shores: Literary Essays collects critical work by South African author and two-time Booker-winner J.M. Coetzee. Coetzee posits in ""What Is a Classic"" that ""[c]riticism... is duty-bound to interrogate the classic"" and thereby ""may be what the classic uses to define itself and ensure its survival."" None of these thoughtful, deft and erudite essays, all but one of which were previously published, land heavily or obviously (if at all) on any side of a literary, critical or political issue like Coetzee's poised fiction.
