Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee


Summary of Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee from Book Depository: A divorced, middle-aged English professor finds himself increasingly unable to resist affairs with his female students. When discovered by the college authorities he is expected to apologize to save his job, but instead he refuses and resigns, retiring to live with his daughter on her remote farm.

My take
I got so much from this slim volume - on middle age, of sex, of racism, of fatherhood/daughterhood. It made me empathic, angry, sentimental. I must read this again.
