Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is often remarked that J. M. Coetzee's academic interests in linguistics have influenced his fiction. Exactly how his graduate education and continuing interests in the linguistic sciences and linguistic philosophy might be manifest in his writing is a question that has never been systematically explored. This is the subject that Carrol Clarkson takes up in her monograph, J. M. Coetzee: Countervoices. She does not disappoint: Countervoices is essential reading in the burgeoning field of Coetzee studies." - Professor David Attwell, University of York, UK 

'In this highly original and thought-provoking study, Carrol Clarkson puts her expertise in linguistic theory and philosophy to excellent use. Her meticulous discussions of the nerves and sinews of Coetzee's writing undergird a subtle account of the ethical implications of his fiction, and encourage the reader to returban to the novels with a new sense of their achievement.' – Professor Derek Attridge, University of York, UK
