For The Course

I finished Coetzee's Waiting For The Barbarians yesterday, a novella of lyrical insight, bringing the essence of Borges' "Story of the Warrior and The Captive" to a relative boil with a searing examination of intimacy and torture, the thus inscription of the body and its definition by alterity, the Other our beyond the walls.

The work was astonishing.
