Derek Attridge has produced the finest monograph on J. M. Coetzee so far in the opinion of this reviewer. J. M. Coetzee and the Ethics of Reading: Literature in the Event is fine not only as a work of exegesis on one of the most important contemporary writers (making it arguably the work for researchers and students to read), but also as a valuable contribution to the burgeoning of postcolonial literature and criticism, particularly in its elaboration and extension of postcolonialism's theories of otherness and alterity.
