The poet Abraham Sutzkever once said, “He who keeps his childlike soul never grows old”. For her first book, 26-year-old Rebecca D’Souza has chosen to awaken that childlike soul that many of us rarely let show. The author tells us more: “I started writing the book in 2019. The book reads like a fable, and brings together questions that Young Man – the character – asks his best friend, who is none other than the moon. This candid conversation suits both adults and children who want to celebrate and fathom the beauty of life.”

“89 Questions to the Moon” will be available for Rs 300 at the following bookstores:  Le Cygne, Le Printemps (Vacoas, Curepipe and Port Louis) and Bookcourt.
