Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“[A] civilized discourse between two cultivated and sophisticated men…A pleasure to be in their company.”—Michael Dirda, The Washington Post.

“These two famous writers might seem at first an unlikely pairing…[but] as a series of collaborative inquiries and an extended meditation on the processes of friendship, the book has something substantive to offer.”—The New York Times Book Review

"Here and Now is akin to eavesdropping on a dazzling, extended dinner conversation between two intelligent and substantive minds... A very appealing, human portrait of these two writers."—Bookpage 

“A genial, often riveting exchange. Amiable and revealing missives from two remarkable minds.”—Kirkus Reviews

“What keeps us reading is not the brilliance of the minds – though that feature is generously on offer as well – but the warmth, unpretentiousness, and honesty that emerges from these pages…An invigorating and deeply engaging look at two literary greats, as we’ve never seen them before.”—thestar.com

“A striking portrait of two great friends…the result of Auster and Coetzee’s exchange is nothing short of witty, sharp and thought-provoking, and offers a fascinating look into the minds of two of the 20th century’s greatest writers.”—Malibu Magazine

Praise for J. M. Coetzee

“Many, this reviewer among them, would consider [Coetzee] the greatest living novelist in English.” —The New York Times Book Review

"Coetzee may turn out to be one of the last great novelists, exalted by the intensity of his self-awareness and his willingness to make his home in a spiritual and intellectual impasse of which few of his contemporaries were even aware."--The Nation 

“South Africa’s most brilliant novelist . . . challenges us to doubt our preconceived notions not only of love but of truth itself.” —The Seattle Times

"Coetzee's signature brilliance...A mixture of penetrating insight and brittle wit that forces our attention on common terrors we don't want to think about."--The Washington Post

Praise for Paul Auster

“A writer of lean, genre-tinged novels whose unaffected prose belies their philosophical complexity….He's also one of our most playful novelists, a lover of narrative labyrinths on par with Borges, to whom he has often been compared.”—The Washington Post

"Paul Auster is one of those sages with confounding talent—confounding for one because he's simply that good... He belongs among Vonnegut, Roth, and DeLillo.”—The Daily Beast

Présentation de l'éditeur

The high-spirited correspondence between New York Times bestselling author Paul Auster and Nobel laureate J. M. Coetzee

Although Paul Auster and J. M. Coetzee had been reading each other’s books for years, the two writers did not meet until February 2008. Not long after, Auster received a letter from Coetzee, suggesting they begin exchanging letters on a regular basis and, “God willing, strike sparks off each other.”

Here and Now is the result of that proposal: the epistolary dialogue between two great writers who became great friends. Over three years their letters touched on nearly every subject, from sports to fatherhood, film festivals to incest, philosophy to politics, from the financial crisis to art, death, family, marriage, friendship, and love.

Their correspondence offers an intimate and often amusing portrait of these two men as they explore the complexities of the here and now and is a reflection of two sharp intellects whose pleasure in each other’s friendship is apparent on every page. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

Quelle déception. Deux grands auteurs que j'aime - surtout les premiers livres de Auster et tous ceux de Coetzee. Mais là leurs conversations sont d'un ennui.....et d'une pauvreté lexicale saisissants.

Two Brilliant Minds In Correspondence 14 mars 2013
Par Tyler Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love the novels of Don DeLillo, Philip Roth, Thomas Pynchon, and Denis Johnson. They are all incredibly intelligent and gifted writers. But I get the most excited whenever a new Paul Auster book comes out. There's something about his voice, like an uncle who lives abroad. Someone you don't get to see as often as you'd like. He's got a million strange and funny stories. All unique, all true. And for some reason it only seems right that those things would happen to him. Your strange and funny uncle who smoke too many cigars and drinks a little too much wine.

That Auster and Coetzee corresponded so consistently through the years is remarkable. That they did so using a typewriter and a fax machine is telling of the importance these two men place on letters, both figuratively and literally.

Of course, I was drawn more to the Auster portions of this book, but it was interesting to see the ways in which conversation topics were introduced and carried on by both sides. It was Coetzee's suggestion that they write each other, and you can tell he has immense respect for Auster.

Coetzee's South African heritage makes for some unique perspective on culture, politics, and relationships. Sometimes you can almost sense Auster is analyzing his friend to be used as a character in a novel.

Over all, this is an insightful read if you're fan of either writer, otherwise it remains a curiosity in the bibliography of one of America's most gifted and interesting writers.

Not Terribly Interesting 3 avril 2013
Par L. Young - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have always found the lives of writers fascinating so I jumped at the chance to see the letters exchanged between two eminent writers of the 21st century. Unfortunately I didn't find much of interest here. Clearly these two men have a warm friendship. As to be expected the writing of each is first rate. The topics discussed were lackluster. There was a lot of chat about sports, not very interesting to me. There was also a good deal of chatting about politics which demonstrated a level of naivete that I found astounding in two such intelligent men. You will find nothing here about the works in progress of both authors and little about other authors work. There is no literary gossip either.
Reading the Growth of a Friendship 10 octobre 2013
Par C. Middleton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Reading the correspondence between two individuals in history has always been a guilty pleasure for this writer. When beginning the exchange, are they aware that their letters will be published, thus the writing is not only for the letter writer but also, consciously, for the public at large? This is a cynical question or maybe a wise one, considering today's "bottom line" economy and publishers overall. The notion of "Art for Art's sake"; that 19th century aesthetic sensibility or Romantic sensibility is long gone, even if had ever existed at all. That now said, there is honesty in these letters that really, after many years pass, throughout Auster's & Coetzee's correspondence, their true friendship rings authentic.

Both writers admired each other's work despite coming from diverse cultures. Auster, a dyed in the wool New Yorker and Coetzee, a born South African, having experienced the horrors of Apartheid first hand to then live in Australia, and of all places, Adelaide, more a town than a city compared to Melbourne or Sydney. Both men, however, are life- long globe trotters, giving them a more than parochial view of the world.

Considering both touch upon major topics from sports to the Middle-East debacle, both manage as well to veer off to minor topics like the derivation of a particular phrase or word.

Only a three year exchange of thoughts and simple habits as writers, for me, uncannily, they had become such good friends in such a short time, as if they had been writing each other for a life time!
Quite extraordinary because in no-way is this exchange of ideas a literary artifice to fool the reader.

These letters, particular close to the end, reveals the blooming of a true friendship, and this is what makes this text unique and a worthwhile read

Engrossing for Coetzee/Auster Fans 12 avril 2013
Par D. Crowell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This slender collection of letters exceeded my expectations. Definitely suited for Auster/Coetzee fans because the letters offer new insights to two men who are some of the greatest literary minds alive today. Both are philosophical in nature and think seriously about life, art, literature and things as common as "friendship" and discuss their thoughts freely and openly in these letters. It is not necessary to be familiar with either author's writing, yet being familiar will add depth to the collection. I found the two men's discussion of critics, letters from readers, and literary reviews fascinating, and also enjoyed the discussions of "friendship" etc. While at times, I was put off by Auster's political views which were naive and prone to following "slippery slope" types of flawed thinking, overall I found the letters inspiring and intellectually provocative. The collection was a fast read, hard to put down and an example of a successful collaboration among two brilliant writers
Revised Opinion 23 août 2014
Par Adam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read the book twice. For the first time, my feelings were ambivalent. I am a fan of Coetzee; Auster is known to me from the films (Smoke, Lulu on the Bridge), so I was expecting an exchange of letters arising from the internal needs of both writers and not of correspondence ordered by a publisher. But I changed my mind. Value in itself is not only a varied picture of the world in the eyes of the older (Coetzee) and younger author (Auster), but also their personal relationship, marked by positive intentions and emotions - openness, curiosity and respect for the respondent and his literary work. It is an example to follow as a model for a working relationship and human relations. "In other words, the basis of my interest is ethical rather than aesthetic," as Coetzee says in one of his letters.
