Description - The Death of Jesus by J. M. Coetzee

An extraordinary new novel from one of the world's greatest living writers, two-time Booker Prize winner and Nobel Laureate J.M Coetzee, that can be read as a stand-alone or a follow up novel to The Childhood of Jesus and The Schooldays of Jesus.

After The Childhood of Jesus and The Schooldays of Jesus, J. M. Coetzee completes his trilogy with a new masterwork, The Death of Jesus.

David has grown to be a tall ten-year-old. He is a natural at soccer, and loves kicking a ball around with his friends. His father Sim n and Bolivar the dog usually watch. His mother Ines works in a fashion boutique.

David still asks lots of questions. In dancing class at the Academy of Music he dances as he chooses. He refuses to do sums and will not read any books except Don Quixote.

One day Julio Fabricante, the director of a nearby orphanage, invites David and his friends to form a proper soccer team. David decides he will leave Sim n and Ines to live with Julio. Before long he succumbs to a mysterious illness.

In The Death of Jesus, J. M. Coetzee continues to explore the meaning of a world empty of memory but brimming with questions.
