  • What buyers say about Waiting for the Barbarians: A Novel


    This is a very good novel, better than Foe, and it has a good main character, the town magistrate, who is also the object of intense oppression.


    It's a great style and easy to follow, and it's important as it was in South Africa a long time ago.


    The novel is a masterful work of writing by Coetzee.


    The novel is a masterful work of writing by Coetzee.
