Coetzee's Acts of Genre in the Later Works: Truth-Telling, Fiction and the Public Intellectual, Jane Poyner , 2009 single work criticism
Poyner argues that 'an increasingly meta-discursive mode in Coetzee's fiction ... coincides with his departure from South Africa for Adelaide, Australia' and that, while Coetzee's 'later works may seem to have less relevance in a book about postcolonial authorship, they do make important contributions to debates on intellectualism and the author's authority pertinent to the postcolonial field'.
