Book Description:

The writer Elizabeth Costello was a character in Coetzee's 1999 novel The Lives of Animals. In this novel, the eponymous Elizabeth, now aging, gives lectures, writes about other people's books, and participates in a variety of literary and philosophical conversations - all of which not only reveal her as a human being but mirror Coetzee's own recent nonfiction works.

Author Biography
Coetzee, J. M. (Author)
J.M. Coetzee's full name is John Michael Coetzee. Born in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1940, Coetzee is a writer and critic who uses the political situation in his homeland as a backdrop for many of his novels. Coetzee published his first work of fiction, Dusklands, in 1974.

Another book, Boyhood, loosely chronicles an unhappy time in Coetzee's childhood when his family moved from Cape Town to the more remote and unenlightened city of Worcester. Other Coetzee novels are In the Heart of the Country and Waiting for the Barbarians. Coetzee's critical works include White Writing and Giving Offense: Essays on Censorship.

Coetzee is a two-time recipient of the Booker Prize and in 2003, he won the Nobel Literature Award.
