Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee won the booker prize in 1999. I enjoyed reading this novel a lot. The book is focused around a middle aged man dealing with his life and his self inflicted wounds. The first page begins with the exploration of the mind of the protagonist Professor David Lurie who is a professor of Romantic poetry at the University of Cape Town. He is divorced twice and has a daughter Lucy. He involves in a affair with his twenty year old student. When the affair is discovered to girl’s parents, they complaint. In front of the inquiry committee David admits his guilt. He is publicly condemned and loses his job. He then goes to stay with Lucy her small holding in the eastern Cape. David and his daughter are assaulted in their own houses by three strangers. They rapes her and beat David and set him on fire. Both survives and then David wants to file a case but Lucy refuses. Later, he finds that Lucy is pregnant and wants to give birth to the baby. Then he decides to stay with her and helps her. The whole story is spell bound. All the characters are interlinked so well. For me, the most haunting moment in the plot comes when Lucy is gang raped and when David visits the girl’s parents and apologizes for his behavior. I liked the whole plot and characters. Recommend it to all who wish to read a extra beautiful literature although the book is an complex read sometime which can’t be understood in just a single read.
