Details: On Love, Death and Reading

Author(s): Tegan Bennett Daylight


In this deeply intimate and insightful work, Daylight describes how her rich storehouse of reading has nourished her life, and how her life informs her reading. In both, she shows us that it's the small points of connection - the details - that really matter: what we see when someone close to us dies, when we give birth, when we fall in love, when we make friends. The details are what we can share and compare and carry with us.



From page one, this book is about small things that matter, Daylight delights in the details, she is a close observer, a recorder of moments, an astute communicator but most importantly a thoughtful reader.  ‘The Details’ is an intimate, at times academic and restrained meditation on the meaning and comfort of words, books and the act of reading. I loved this book! Kim
