Description

The luminous new novel from ‘one of the best writers of our time’, double Booker Prize winner J. M. Coetzee.

‘Full of truth, tearfully moving to read… Brilliant’ Evening Standard

Simon and David – a tall ten-year-old – are in a new land, together with a woman named Ines. The small family have found a home in which David can thrive.

But David is spotted by Julio Fabricante, the director of a local orphanage, playing football with his friends. He shows unusual talent. When David announces that he wants to live with Julio and the children in his care, Simon and Ines are stunned. David is leaving them, and they can only love him and bear witness.

The Death of Jesus is the completion of an incomparable trilogy in which J. M. Coetzee explores the meaning of a world empty of memory but brimming with questions.
