Vita Brevis

Vita Brevis

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.
