  • J. M. Coetzee’s Booker Prize-winning novel Disgrace, set in post-apartheid South Africa, takes us into the disquieting mind of twice-divorced university teacher David Lurie as he loses his job and his honour after engaging in an ill-advised affair with a susceptible student.

    When he retreats to his daughter’s farm, a brutal attack highlights their fractured relationship. Is it only through intense suffering and shame—his own as well as that of others—that David can begin to change, to understand his country and what it means to be human?
