AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Novel in Africa is the text of November 1998’s Una’s Lecture, delivered by South African novelist J.M. Coetzee. While a Coetzee text, one critic notes, “typically produces irritation or discomfort,” The Novel in Africa produces surprise as well: the lecture is embedded in a fiction, and functions as both a lecture and a segment in a short story.' (Publisher's summary)


  • Includes preface by Randolph Starn.

    Lesson 2 from Elizabeth Costello.
