Book summary

This haunting novel questions the border between poetry and prose. Ava Klein, lover of life and professor of comparative literature, is dying. On this her last day, she recalls her experiences in unique and lyrical detail; a meditation on war, an ode to joy, a celebration of life. Helene Cixous praises AVA as incorporating "a language that heals as much as it separates." Publishers Weekly called it "heartbreakingly familiar emotions in an utterly original form." [via]
