Slow Man

Author(s): J. M. Coetzee; M. J. Hyland (Introduction by)


If none is left who will pronounce judgment on such a life, if the Great Judge of All has given up judging and withdrawn to pare his nails, then he will pronounce it himself: a wasted chance.

When a bicycle accident causes photographer Paul Rayment to lose a leg, he must reexamine his life so far, and what remains of it. He falls in love with the nurse who tends to his needs--but the arrival of famed novelist Elizabeth Costello upends everything. Slow Man is an intricate novel about identity, memory and desire, from a contemporary master.
