J. M. Coetzee e Paul Auster

Tra il 2008 e il 2011, J. M. Coetzee e Paul Auster hanno intrattenuto una fitta corrispondenza che verteva soprattutto sullo sport. Ora è pubblicata in Here and Now: Letters (2008-2011), da Viking.
"December 30, 2008
Dear Paul,
...  It is high summer in this hemisphere, and I spent most of Sunday sitting in front of a television screen (shades of Wall Street!) watching the third day of a five-day game of cricket between the national teams of Australia and South Africa. I was absorbed, I was emotionally involved, I tore myself away only reluctantly. In order to watch the game I put aside the two or three books I am in the middle of reading". newyorker.
