'Elizabeth Costello is an Australian writer of international renown; she is feted, studied, honoured. Famous principle for an early novel that established her reputation and from which, it seems, she will never escape, she has reached the stage, late in life, where her remaining function is to be venerated and applauded.
Elizabeth Costello is a humane, moral, and uncompromising creation; J.M. Coetzee's latest work of fiction offers us a profound and delicate vision of literary celebrity, artistry and the private life of the mind.'
