J.M. Coetzee's reading at LEFFEST

Back
J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize in Literature, will publish next March Siete cuentos morales (it will be firstly released in a Spanish edition at El Hilo de Ariadna). The writer has attended LEFFEST for several times and in the year 2011 he shared an unforgettable reading with writers Don DeLillo, Siri Hustvedt and Paul Auster, in a full ‘Amphiteatro de Chimica da Escola Politécnica’. Back then he made us the wonderful surprise of reading the 12 first pages of a ‘not yet published story’. It was, neither more nor less, his novel to come The Childhood of Jesus, that would be published two years later.

Look at that reading we still keep in our memories: https://youtu.be/OOolwgDX3_Q
