South African writer John M. Coetzee is perhaps the most enigmatic of all Nobel laureates, a man who dedicated his Nobel speech to Robinson Crusoe, a man whose name has long been a mystery. In Waiting for the Barbarians, a small town on the outskirts of an unnamed empire is excited by news of an impending barbarian attack from the border deserts. A colonel from the heart of the empire, ready to destroy everyone, a city judge who does not want to panic and as a result turns from accuser to accused, a captive girl who becomes an object of sensual and religious worship for the judge... "Waiting for the Barbarians" is a novel in its nature. or novel-metaphor.
