Reviews

"[The Childhood of Jesus] plunges us at once into a mysterious and dreamlike terrain....A Kafka-inspired parable of the quest for meaning itself."--Joyce Carol Oates, The New York Times Book Review (front page)

"[A book] of profound and painful humanity, preoccupied with some of the most essential questions about what it means to be a parent and what happens when noble principles are confronted with the grubby details of everyday life."--Patrick Flanery, The Washington Post

"Gripping from the very first page."--Bookforum

"A return to form....[Coetzee's] most brisk and dazzling book."--Benjamin Lytal, The Daily Beast

"Compelling--eerie, tautly written."--Los Angeles Times

"[Coetzee] is a consummate withholder, one of the great masters of the unsaid and the inexplicit."--The New York Review of Books

"The Childhood of Jesus--this cryptic, mythic, haunting fable--ranks among J. M. Coetzee's best."--The Chicago Tribune

"With this powerful and puzzling novel, Nobel laureate Coetzee...returns to the allegorical focus that defined Waiting for the Barbarians."--Booklist (starred)

"Captivating and provocative....Coetzee's precise prose is at once rich and austere, lean and textured, deceptively straightforward and yet expansive, as he considers what is required, not just of the body, but by the heart."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A fictional form that is as provocative as it is readable."--Star Tribune
