Trading on his reputation, he lends his name to the letterheads of renowned scientific institutions and half-heartedly heads a government-backed initiative tackling global warming. When Beard’s professional and personal worlds collide in a freak accident, an opportunity presents itself for Beard to extricate himself from his marital mess, reinvigorate his career and save the world from environmental disaster.


J.M. COETZEE (Australia)
Summertime
Harvil Secker
- ANG R COE
A young English biographer is working on a book about the late writer, John Coetzee. He plans to focus on a period in the seventies when, the biographer senses, Coetzee was ’finding his feet as a writer’. He embarks on a serie of interviews with people who were important to Coetzee. Thus emerges a portrait of the young Coetzee as an awkward, bookish individual, regarded as an outsider within the family. His insistence on doing manual work, his long hair and beard, and rumours that he writes poetry evoke nothing but suspicion in the South Africa of the time.

Notwithstanding

Blood’s a rover
Century

Only one of them will survive.
