DisgraceDisgrace by J.M. Coetzee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just realized that I watched the movie before had read the book.

John Malkovich is perfect in portraying Professor David Lurie, a professor who is 52 years old and has a love affair with one of his students while teaching at the Technical University of Cape Town.

Once this affair becomes public known, he decides to vista her daughter Lucy who lives in the countryside.

And then their lives will change forever.

A true masterpiece written by J.M. Coetzee and this book was the winner of the 1999 Booker Prize. I must read more books by this author.

The movie Disgrace (2008) was directed by Steve Jacobs. And Jessica Haines acts as Lucy Lurie.
