Vita Brevis : Floria Aemilia's Letter to Aurel Augustine, Paperback

Vita Brevis : Floria Aemilia's Letter to Aurel Augustine Paperback



A playful and inventive work from the bestselling author of SOPHIE'S WORLD. A box of Latin manuscripts comes to light in an Argentine flea market.

An apocryphal invention by some 17th or 18th century scolar, or a transcript of what it appears to be - a hitherto unheard of letter to St Augustine to a woman he renounced for chastity?

VITA BREVIS is both an entrancing human document and a fascinating insight into the life and philosophy of St.Augustine.

Gaarder's interpretation of Floria's letter is as playful, inventive and questioning as SOPHIE'S WORLD.
