Robinson Coetzee

In his usual idiosyncratic fashion J.M. Coetzee has orated his Nobel Lecture through the persona of Robinson Crusoe. With great plagues, decoy ducks, parrots and mutliple Defoe references Coetzee weaves a fascinating tale of isolation, unease and confused identity. Worth a read.

While in tragic news, short-listed Nobel candidate Janet Frame has been diagnosed with cancer.
