Late Essays: 2006-2016 will be available January 2018. Nobel laureate and two-time Booker Prize winner J. M. Coetzee returns with a haunting and surprising vel about childhood and destiny that is sure to rank with his classic vels. Separated from his mother as a passenger on a boat bound for a new land, David is a boy who is quite literally adrift. The piece of paper explaining his situation is lost, but a fellow passenger, Simon, vows to look after the boy. When the boat docks, David and Simon are issued new names, new birthdays, and virtually a whole new life. Strangers in a strange land, kwing thing of their surroundings, r the language or customs, they are determined to find David's mother. Though the boy has memory of her, Simon is certain he will recognize her at first sight. -But after we find her, - David asks, -what are we here for?- An eerie allegorical tale told largely through dialogue, The Childhood of Jesus is a literary feat--a vel of ideas that is also a tender, compelling narrative. Coetzee's many fans will celebrate his return while new readers will find The Childhood of Jesus an intriguing introduction to the work of a true master.
