„In manchen Breitengraden gibt es vor der Sommersonnenwende und danach eine Zeitspanne, nur wenige Wochen, in der die Dämmerungen lang und blau werden. Während der blauen Stunden glaubt man, der Tag wird nie enden. Wenn die Zeit der blauen Stunden sich dem Ende nähert (und das wird sie, sie endet), erlebt man ein Frösteln, eine Vorahnung der Krankheit: das blaue Licht verschwindet, die Tage werden schon kürzer, der Sommer ist vorbei.“ In Blaue Stunden erinnert Joan Didion sich an ihre Tochter Quintana, daran,wie es war, sie aufwachsen zu sehen und Abschied zu nehmen, als Quintana mit nur 39 Jahren starb. Eine sehr persönliche Bilanz der großen amerikanischen Autorin und ein ehrliches Buch über Tod und Vergänglichkeit, Erinnerung und Alter, über das, was wir verlieren, und das, was bleibt.

„Was liest du gerade?“ So beginnt das Gespräch zwischen Will Schwalbe und seiner Mutter Mary Anne. Sie ist todkrank, doch anstatt zu verzweifeln, widmet sie sich ihrer großen Leidenschaft, dem Lesen. Über ein Jahr begleitet Will seine Mutter bis zum Ende ihres Lebens – und durch eine Welt von Büchern, die sie gemeinsam erkunden: Joseph und seine Brüder, Die Eleganz des Igels, Der Vorleser ... Am Ende erkennt Will: Lesen ist nicht das Gegenteil von handeln – es ist das Gegenteil von sterben. Will Schwalbe erzählt die Geschichte jenes Jahres. Er erzählt von den Büchern, die ihrer beider Leben geprägt haben. Und er erzählt von Trauer, Angst und der Erkenntnis, dass das Glück ganz unerwartet aus dem Moment heraus entsteht.

This book of poetry is from my heart. These words came out of a place so deep within me that it sustained my life when I wanted to die too as I watched my son's life slip away. The story of this dying process comes from my perspective. It's the best I can give you. My son, Thomas, had to endure the pain and suffering of cancer and an amputation that could never heal plus the fear and dread of leaving a wife and young child, which is a sorrow I cannot even imagine for such a tender loving man and devoted father. The story poured out of my heart through my fingertips and onto the page as the great river of grief flowed through me. Allowing it, so I later learned, is what awakened in me the ancient force I was longing to reconnect to, but had forgotten how... my soul. I wrote these poems for myself, it was how I survived the grief of my son's death. Now I want to share my son's story, his love, my love, the love that runs through us and is us. May the thread of connectedness be revealed so that in hearing our story, you may take courage when the time comes and really give yourself permission to be present and truly show up!!! In the end the only thing that really matters is love. Through poetry I have woven a web of connectedness, a bridge into the shared heart of a mother and her dying son. The way is lighted for you, but your experience will be your own. you will learn what there is for you to learn. There are no words to describe some things and poetry is such a beautiful way to give these "no words" expression. The deepest experience is awarded those who can read between the lines. I encourage you to read aloud those passages that bring tears to your eyes or a lump in your throat. You do me honor which I pass on to my son. These words came from a place so deep within that it sustained me when I wanted to die in sympathy as I watched the life force slip away from my son's wasting body. Through grief I encountered my soul ... and re-awakened to my soul journey.

Für drei Wochen will Nicola bei ihrer Freundin in Melbourne wohnen, um sich einer alternativen Krebstherapie zu unterziehen; das Zimmer steht bereit. Doch Helen trifft es völlig unvorbereitet - wie desolat Nicolas Zustand ist, wie kräftezehrend ihre Pflege, wie barbarisch die Bedingungen jener obskuren Therapie, wie wundergläubig ihre todkranke Freundin und vor allem, mit welch hilflosem, unbändigem Zorn sie selbst auf all dies reagiert. Mit entwaffnender Wahrhaftigkeit beschreibt Helen Garner diese unerträgliche Situation, in der Freundschaft, Verantwortung, ja ein Leben auf dem Spiel stehen. Doch sie setzt der Verzweiflung ein Maß an kluger Menschlichkeit und beherztem Witz entgegen, die Das Zimmer zu einer bewegenden und tröstlichen, auf wunderbare Weise heilsamen Lektüre machen.
