In Possible Lives Rose provides a provocative opportunity to revitalize our hopes for public education by taking us into classrooms/5(). I volunteered to write this book review of Fleur Jaeggy’s These Possible Lives, translated by Minna Zallman Proctor, over a year ago.

It was a foolish thing to do given my schedule, but I had just read and reviewed Minna Zallman Proctor’s essay collection Landslide, and I waslike most graduate students, I was overly optimistic about my time .Praise For These Possible Lives Jaeggy’s book is poetical-biographical, fictional-critical, essayistic-historical—a book unlimited.
