About the Author

South African PEN (SA PEN) is a leading voice of literature that brings together poets, novelists, essayists, historians, playwrights, critics, translators, editors, journalists, and screenwriters in a common concern for the craft and art of writing. PEN is a nonpolitical organization representing writers of the world, defending free-expression, and encouraging literature. Through its 145 centers in more than 104 countries, International PEN operates on all six continents. Over time they have launched authors who have since gone on to publish their own full works of fiction. J. M. Coetzee is the Booker– and Nobel Prize–winning author of numerous books, including Disgrace, Foe, and The Life and Times of Michael K.
