Overview:Light Years: A Girlhood in Hawai'i - Susanna Moore is best known for her critically acclaimed novels complex and compelling works like In the Cut and My Old Sweetheart. Now, Moore's Light Years is a shimmering look at the early life of this cherished novelist. Taking the form of a Commonplace Book, it mixes reminiscences with passages from famous works of literature that were formative in her younger years. Born in Hawai'i at a time when the islands were separated from the U.S. mainland by five days' ship travel, Moore was raised in a secluded paradise of water, light, and color. As a child she spent endless days holed up with a bundle of books while the sound of the ocean and the calls of her brothers and sister drifted toward her through the palm grove. All around her, Moore saw flashes of the ocean described in those pages: a force of kaleidoscopic beauty and romantic possibility, but with an undercurrent of unfathomable darkness. In Light Years: A Girlhood in Hawai'i, she weaves reminiscences of her childhood with some of her favorite pieces of literature excerpts from Robinson Crusoe, Moby-Dick, Treasure Island, Kon-Tiki, To the Lighthouse, and many others.
