SVIZRA 7: As If Nothing Were

Rut Plouda, Hannah Felce (Translator), Nathan Hamilton (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


AGAINST THE BACKDROP of the changing seasons, Rut Plouda deftly interweaves descriptions of the daily routine on her remote Alpine farm with the pain of her disabled son’s early death but also the redemptive joy of his short life. In this deeply moving and personal story, Plouda watches from the window as, despite everything, nature continues to renew. Like running the farm, her grief gradually becomes an everyday reality and life, like the coming and going of the swallows and the turning of the acer leaves, goes on
