Product description


"Thought-provoking, revelatory, grave and comforting. It is impossible not to be moved by it in the most profound way" (ALEXANDER McCALL SMITH)

"An inclusive and hugely nourishing reminder to take stock of our mortality . . . Elegant, elegiac and thought-provoking" (Observer)

"Holloway writes with passion and honesty at all times, and the result is compelling" (Guardian)

"Every bit as meditative, witty and elegiac as you would expect" (Scotsman)

"The record of a mind too large, too curious and far too generous to be confined within any single religious denomination" (PHILIP PULLMAN)

"A wise, compassionate perspective on a persistently taboo subject. The pragmatism and gentle humour make it an unusually inclusive book. For everyone, however young" (COLIN FIRTH)

"Poignant . . . a subtle and consoling guide to dying" (CHARLOTTE RUNCIE Daily Telegraph)

"Thoughtful, playful, courageous and deeply altruistic . . . a fine companion for anyone who wishes to live a life of any depth" (A.L. KENNEDY)

"A wonderful, wise, compassionate and befriending piece of work" (KATHRYN MANNIX, author of With the End in Mind)

"Written with the integrity, intelligence and wit that we expect from Richard Holloway" (KAREN ARMSTRONG) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
