(VIRTUAL) TALKS BY WOMEN WRITERS
TEGAN BENNETT DAYLIGHT
in conversation with ASHLEY HAY
Tegan Bennett Daylight has led a life in books – as a writer, a teacher and a critic, but first and foremost as a reader. In this deeply insightful and intimate work, she describes how reading and life are interwined - her reading has nourished her life, and life has informed her reading. In both, it’s the details that matter.
Each chapter is a revelation, and a celebration of how books offer not an escape from ‘real life’ but a richer engagement with the business of living.
The result is a work that will truly deepen your relationship with books, and with other readers. The delight is in the details.
Like all great art, The Details is about many things at once: among them birth and death, laughter and misery, mothers and children, the body and the spirit – and informing and transforming all this of course, it is about reading and the creation of a sustaining inner life…If you love reading, you’ll cherish this book for showing you why.
