Video: Janet Suzman Talks Disgrace, Ways of Staying on the BBC

Alert! SA-born actress Janet Suzman – she of the Ruth Rendell mysteries – has given an interview about the new play she stars in, Dream of the Dog by Craig Higginson, in which she mentions, in the context of Dream of the Dog‘s racial tensions, both JM Coetzee’s Disgrace and Kevin Bloom‘s Ways of Staying.

Disgrace she calls “bleak”, but Bloom’s new book is “extraordinary… pretty remarkable about what it’s like to be there”. High praise indeed from such a grande dame. Watch:
