Disgrace (1999)
By J. M. Coetzee


Coetzee fluidly depicts the social and political turmoil of his homeland, contemporary South Africa. Disgrace features a twice-married, twice-divorced 52-year-old professor, David Lurie, who tries to flee personal and professional shame. Lurie leaves his life behind to live on his daughter's farm, only to find brutality, heartbreak, and further disgrace.

Fun Fact: J.M. Coetzee also won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2003.

Next: The Blind Assassin (2000)
By Margaret Atwood
