Written a few years after Transtromer suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak, Memories Look at Me is Tomas Transtromer's lyrical autobiography about growing up in Sweden. His story opens with a streak of light, a comet that becomes a brilliant metaphor for my life as he tries to penetrate the earliest, formative memories of his past. This childhood life unfolds itself slowly in eight glistening chapters that gradually reveal the most secret of treasures: how Transtromer discovered poetry.
