Leituras Ao Luar

Author: Brenda Walker

Brenda Walker, writer and literature professor, talks about the five stages of her treatment for breast cancer and the various authors who helped her through the complicated process of recovery. While giving us magnificent introductions and insights into the work of writers such as Dante, Tolstoy, Nabokov, Beckett, and Dickens, Brenda shows how the very process of reading – the surrender and then the return to you – is a metaphor for the healing process. Reading in the Moonlight guides us, gives us confidence, illuminates dark places, shows the beauty of the stories we encounter in moments of danger, and demonstrates that reading can be fundamental to life itself.
