The luminous new novel from 'one of the best writers of our time', twice winner of the Booker Prize
'The Death of Jesus is full of truth' -- David Sexton, Book of the Week, Evening Standard

In The Childhood of Jesus, Simòn found a boy, David, and they began life in a new land, together with a woman named Inès. In The Schooldays of Jesus, the small family searched for a home in which David could thrive.

In The Death of Jesus, David, now a tall ten-year-old, is spotted by Julio Fabricante, the director of a local orphanage, playing football with his friends. He shows unusual talent. When David announces that he wants to go and live with Julio and the children in his care, Simòn and Inès are stunned. David is leaving them, and they can only love him and bear witness.

With almost unbearable poignancy J. M. Coetzee explores the meaning of a world empty of memory but brimming with questions.

**A SUNDAY TIMES BOOK TO WATCH OUT FOR IN 2020**
