    Life & Times Of Michael K

    By: J M Coetzee

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    In South Africa, whose civil administration is collapsing under the pressure of years of civil strife, an obscure young gardener named Michael K decides to take his mother on a long march away from the guns towards a new life in the abandoned countryside. Everywhere he goes, however, the war follows him. Tracked down and locked up as a collaborator with the rural guerrillas, he embarks on a fast that angers, baffles, and finally awes his captors.

    The story of Michael K is the story of a man caught up in a war beyond his understanding, but determined to live his life, however minimally, on his own terms. J M Coetzee has produced a masterpiece which has the astonishing power to make the wilderness bloom.

    Winner of the Booker Prize.
