The narrator, a student in 1950s South Africa, plots an escape from his native country, from the stifling love of his mother, from a father whose failures haunt him - and from what he is sure is impending revolution. However, arriving at last in London, he begins the dark pilgrimage of an outsider.

Recensioner i media

"One of the finest authors writing in the English language today." -- "The Times" <br>"Brilliant as a period piece, Youth also constitutes a remarkable feat of self-destruction." -- "Sunday Times" <br>"Youth shares with Hanif Kureshi's "Intimacy" and Graham Greene's The End of the Affair a rare combination of lived experience, expressed with eloquence, and a fierce uncompromising honesty. A masterpiece." -- "Harpers & Queen" <br>"Coetzee is one of the greatest writers of our time." -- "Los Angeles Times" <br>"Coetzee is able to dissect the human psyche with a surgeon's touch." -- "The Hamilton Spectator" <br>Of the Booker Prize-winning "Disgrace": <br>"The richness of Disgrace lies in the elegant and allegorical role reversals, the spare symbolism of the language and in the characterization. We may not like David Lurie, but in Coetzee's skillful hands we can't dismiss him without pity." -- "The Globe and Mail"
