    Summertime Scenes from Provincial Life 3 , J.M CoetzeeSummertime is a 2009 novel by South African born Nobel laureate J M Coetzee It is the third in a series of fictionalized memoirs by Coetzee the first two being Boyhood and Youth and details the life of one John Coetzee from the perspective of five people who have known him The novel largely takes place in the mid to late 1970s, largely in Cape Town, although there are...

    The halo effect perfected to exquisite levels in Elizabeth Costello is once again employed to similar effect here But this time, the writer s own persona is the protagonist non grata What is left behind is what s compiled in this magnificent but flawed work another dynamite narrative by another dynamite author, about racism in latter 20th century South Africa In this instance, people women, mostly are interviewed, their experience with John Coetzee explored These tales are tragicomic, gorgeous in their concise vernacular, realistic in their anecdotal detail, and above all very astute, very piercing The halo effect, to me, means that we are afforded glimpses, albeit of a very human human being J Coetzee, reclusive, pained, but intuitive auteur, prefame through vastly different modes the squeezing of juice from every possible clue makes this effort an endearing one, often transcending the very story it is telling Which is what happens here Coetzee is the most CONSISTENT writer that I know of This one is yet another one of his, to study, to truly, well, squeeze as much as one can fromAlso, as years progress, it is awesome to see the tragedy level becoming a wee bit intertwined with scenes of joy, or experiences of true love, by the evolving writer Now, there is some awesome metalit element to his literature, as he, in the absurdly titled Summertime, is actually DEAD Basically, this may be one of the longest faux eulogies of all time on...

    late at night, absent people or drink, when it rages out in furnace fear, i think of you and whether it be simply that misery loves company or even though we do die alone, you remind me that we all do it so at least we re all connected in our aloneness your life and your words in some tiny tiny tiny way lessen the burden of existence as with my dog, i know that you will most likely die long before i do and it kind of makes me want to eat the shotgun knowing i ll be living in a world without jack and without coetzee, but if i did that my parents would be destroyed so i d have to kill them first and if i killed my parents and then myself it d really fuck up a whole bunch of people so i d have to take out my sister and her husband and some others and it d end up a real bloodbath and i couldn t very well do that rian malan said A colleague who has worked with Coetzee for than a decade claims to have seen him laugh just once An acquaintance has attended several dinner parties where Coetzee has uttered not a single word i love you so much john maxwell coetzee...

    4.5 Admittedly I haven t read the first two books of this fictionalised biography auto biography of a young man growing up in South Africa, Boyhood and Youth I also haven t read Disgrace, which won the Man Booker Prize in 1999 and sounds a lot like the story of the late John Coetzee of this book a professor leading a passionless life until he has an affair with a student so says the blurb The John of this book is also a Nobel Prize winner for literature, as is J.M Even without those books as background, this is an interesting device, letting us travel with a biographer who s researching the late Coetzee s life by interviewing people from his past whom he apparently noted himself were important to him The various voices are different enough that it reads like real interviews and real scrawled notes.It is obvious to me, an armchair expert yeah, right , that John is a good example of a person with Asperger s Syndrome All Aspies are different, but being socially awkward is reasonably common, and everyone describes John that way, although there s certainly to Asperger s and to John than that It s also impor...

    Of all the three in series Scenes from a Provincial life , this was the one I had highest hopes from Because this was the book that would relate to the period in his life when he was actually writing novels and so, closer or in the period of his greatness It was disappointing because author actually increased the distance from his person by trying to see himself from point of view of other people The diary entries in the begining and the end might be truthful but the interviews in the middle seemed all made unless Coetzee had come up with an idea of time travel or inter dimension travel, written as they are, as interviews of some of people once close to C by a fictional biographer after C s death Now this kind of thing presents than one kind of issue First, none of the people in general and women in particular interviews have been taken seemed to like Coetzee a lot One wonders whether Coetzee isnt making their opinions of himself too critical something common with first two instalments of this series too Pragmatism always beats principles that is just the way things are The universe moves, the ground changes under our feet principles are always a step...

    It has been a very long time since I read something that original The premise of the book is so unusually incisive, so creative in itself Coetzee writes his own biography, post his fictive death, as strung together through his notebooks and the interviews of some of his contemporaries.Behind the dry humor and subtle self deprecation, there ...

    Troppo freddo, troppo pulito direi Troppo facile Troppa poca passione, passione creativa Tutto qui Tempo d estate conclude il ciclo dei romanzi biografici Grandissima creazione letteraria Coetzee morto, un ipotetico biografo, Vincent, intervista cinque persone che sono state vicine allo scrittore Julia, una amante Margot, una cugina Adriana, a di Coetzee non ricambiato Martin, un collega Sophie, una collega con la quale ha avuto una relazione E attraverso le parole di questo biografo che riporta le interviste a coloro che per un periodo hanno intrecciato le loro vite con quelle di C., Coetzee stesso scrive la propria biografia, cercando o fingendo di essere in questo modo il pi obiettivo possibile Emerge subito la tematica principale, al di l delle vicende quotidiane la creazione letteraria riesce ad esprimere la realt in modo fedele o in quanto opera letteraria ha vita propria Ci che auspicabile che il racconto, anche se non pu essere vero alla lettera, lo sia nello spirito Come possiamo fidarci del reso...

    What an odd book The author writes it as though he is someone else writing his biography after his death Parts of it were very strange and parts of it were hard to understand As someone who was living in South Africa in the late 70 s I really enjoyed the A...

    Apparently this is the third of a type of trilogy I did not know that I bought it because it was short Sorry, John I was on vacation at the beach It was called Summertime It was available in paperback and I was low on cash. What I got when I began to read was infinitely There are some books that affect us so deeply the 15.00 price seems ludicrous Admittedly, I am a lousy fan There are few authors whose complete works I ve read, no matter how much I admire their writing Fewer still about whom I know anything personal Summertime is a fictionalized biography Interviews for a biography and notes written by the subject himself, really an unfinished work This furthers the impression of looking in on a life the naturalness of it, the side of biographies we don t normally see It s an engaging portrait of a man, a writer, an artist, possibly even Coetzee himself All those things It s wise and beautiful and wry and, if not a strictly factual account of his life, perhaps it gives a truer glimpse of him For what great writer writes anything without showing us something of themselves One of the things I do know about him is his famed evasiveness He seems disturbed ...

    After Boyhood and Youth, I expected another searing self portrait told in calm and beautifully measured third person What I got is autobiography in quite a revolutionary form the women who knew Coetzee in his early thirties are interviewed about the now dead author Utterly engaging, filled with awkward intimacy and painful slip ups, Summertime is the best book in the trilogy, the best book I ve read in a year.Another interesting aspect of the book so many greats have written their portraits of the artists as young men Goethe, Flaubert, Joyce, and Coetzee himself spring to mind But I ve never read a self examination focusing on this point beyond youth, young manhood , I suppose the trials by fire after self awareness has cemented ...
