and the reply (Noseweek 163)
Dear Dr Coovadia
I have watched your writing with great interest. As an up-and-coming novelist I believed I had found your talent worthy of following carefully. But your merciless dissection of J M Coetzee I find thoroughly distasteful for a number of reasons.
John has the human right to settle in Adelaide or wherever the hell he wants. And what business is it of yours? Go then and consign yourself to teaching in a bush college if this is how a righteous man ought to behave.
