Elizabeth Costello is an Australian writer of international renown; she is f'ted, studied, honoured. Famous principally for an early novel that established her reputation and from which, it seems, she will never escape, she has, late in life, reached the stage where her remaining function is to be venerated and applauded. Elizabeth has made her life's work the study of other people, yet now it is she who is the object of scrutiny. But, for her, what matters is the continuing search for a means of articulating her vision and the verdict of future generations. ELIZABETH COSTELLO is a humane, moral, and uncompromising creation. Double Booker Prize-winning writer J.M. Coetzee's latest work of fiction offers us a profound and delicate vision of literary celebrity, artistry and the private life of the mind.
