We, here, have a high regard for J.M. Coetzee and, generally speaking, really do love his work. We feel the same way about Philip Roth. And so it was with joy that we read Coetzee’s review of Roth’s latest novel Nemesis in an article entitled “On the Moral Brink” in The New York Review of Books. Despite the fact that Coetzee gives away the “big secret” that comes towards the end of Roth’s novel (does it really matter?), we can only suggest that you read Coetzee’s intelligent, thoughtful review, and, of course, Roth’s novel.
