The Details: On Love, Death and Reading description

Part memoir, part love letter to her favourite books and authors, Tegan Bennett Daylight’s first collection of essays, The Details: On Love, Death and Reading, evokes Blake’s observation that one can see “a World in a Grain of Sand.” The detail is the point, she writes. Drawing on noted authors including Jane Austen, George Saunders, S. J. Perelman and particularly Helen Garner, Tegan skillfully blends observations about writing and reading with recollections from her own life, from the profound to the everyday, to moving, inspiring and sometimes hilarious effect.
