Waiting for the Barbarians
Waiting for the Barbarians
J. M. Coetzee

This, to me, is what literature is meant to be. Beautifully written, but not showy. Complex characters, but not quirky. Embued with social consciousness without being preachy. A perfect parable for our times. A modern classic and a must read. --Recommended by Chad, City Lights Books

"A real literary event."--The New York Times Book Review

"A story of profound beauty, clarity and eloquence, which even at its most melodramatic holds to a biblical nobility."--Chicago Tribune Book World
