Belo Horizonte, Brazil: Sonia Lins, 2003. Lins, Sonia. (100)pp. A miniature recreation of Brazilian artist and writer Sonia Lins' last book: a diary of her cancer treatment, and her thoughts and beliefs as she approached her death. Printed both right-side up and upside down, the text is reflective in nature, swaying between peace, humor, and anxiety at final days so evidently numbered. It is autobiographical without isolationism; Lins often connects her emotions to phrases or poems drawn from the world outside herself. The result is an intimate portrayal of aging and palliative care, both physical and emotional. Text in Portuguese. Bound in gray paper over boards, with an engraving of an elephant on the upper cover. Fine. (2 3/4 by 1 7/8; 70x48mm). Item #30616
