Summary
For Ceridwen Dovey, J.M. Coetzee 'has always been there, an unseen but strongly felt presence in our small family drama'. As a child, she observed with fascination her mother's immersion in Coetzee's writing as she worked on what would become the first critical study of his early novels. Even now, as a writer herself, Ceridwen's relationship with Coetzee's books is still mediated by her mother's readings of them--to get to him, she must first step through her mother's formidable mind. With tenderness and insight, Dovey draws on this personal history to explore the Nobel Prize-winner's work--how his books 'do theory' on themselves while also tracing the intellectual heritage that has been passed from mother to daughter
