Although Paul Auster and JM Coetzee had been reading each other’s books for years, they did not meet until 2008. Their encounter sparked the correspondence that is presented in this book. Over three years, their letters touch on almost every subject: sport, fatherhood, literature, film, art, politics, philosophy, the financial crisis, eroticism, love and marriage. The result is an intimate and often amusing portrait of the growing friendship between two brilliant minds as they explore the complexities of life.
