J.M. Coetzee Reads in Public

Now that we have taken J.M. Coetzee to our hearts and accepted him into the Australian literary fold I can tell you that he has opened the 20th CĂșirt Literature Festival in Galway. He also "read from his new novel, the as yet unpublished Slow Man, which explores the travails of an elderly amputee, who is trying to adapt to life after losing his leg in a traffic accident."
