This is an auction for DUSKLANDS, by J M Coetzee. review:

"DUSKLANDS is Coetzee's first book, and it is in some significant ways different from some of his other works, though alike in others. It is a meditation on power, colonialism, the brutal meeting of cultures that occurs when imperialist goals are served and also a study of language, language's conveyance of power and propaganda as well as "self-propaganda" or delusion. It is more oblique in its themes and points, though, than even "In the Heart of the Country." It was very rewarding, especially now as our nation copes with the consequences of the means through which imperialism asserts itself in a globalizing world. I recommend this book."

""Dusklands" is a fascinating read. It illuminates another facet (or two) of the human condition. It is deceptively quick light reading. Subtly profound while intellectually massive, it is a delicate jackhammer. It is so good, and so right, that it is out of print. Do what it takes to find a copy."
