Disgrace - J M Coetzee

English Professor David Lurie is forced to leave his position at the University in Cape Town. He moves away from the city and in with his daughter, settling in to a simple life until something happens which further demolishes his world.

The story is, simultaneously, one of salvation and disintegration.

It is beautifully written. I was completely enthralled and transported, and read the work in a single session.

All I can do is urge you to read it. It's a master-class. Totally brilliant.
