    Although Paul Auster and J. M. Coetzee had been reading each other’s books for years, the two writers did not meet until February 2008. Not long after, Auster received a letter from Coetzee, suggesting they begin exchanging letters on a regular basis and, “God willing, strike sparks off each other.” Here and Now is the result of that proposal: the epistolary dialogue between two great writers who became great friends. Over three years their letters touched on nearly every subject, from sports to fatherhood, film festivals to incest, philosophy to politics....

    Elizabeth Costello is an Australian writer of international renown; she is fêted, studied, honoured. Famous principally for an early novel that established her reputation and from which, it seems, she will never escape, she has, late in life, reached the stage where her remaining function is to be venerated and applauded. Elizabeth has made her life's work the study of other people, yet now it is she who is the object of scrutiny.

    The Good Story is an exchange between a writer with a long-standing interest in moral psychology and a psychotherapist with training in literary studies. Coetzee and Kurtz consider psychotherapy and its wider social context from different perspectives, but at the heart of both their approaches is a fascination with narrative. Working alone, the writer is in control of the story he or she tells.

    Darrell Rohling says: "Probably most interesting to psychotherapists who aspire to write fiction."
