New Books from J.M. Coetzee

The UK's Publishing News has announced that J.M. Coetzee has a new novel, Diary of a Bad Year, coming out in September this year. The novel "is the story of an eminent, 72-year-old Australian writer who is invited to contribute to a volume entitled Strong Opinions - a platform, of course, for Coetzee to air his views on such issues as the treatment of asylum seekers, Guantanamo Bay and the Middle East." In "The Guardian", Joel Rickett reports that the author will also publish a volume of his literary essays, Inner workings, at the start of March.
