'A prodigy of imagination, insight and overwhelming tenderness'
Independent 'Remember me when I'm gone' just took on a whole new
meaning . . . Laura Byrd is in trouble. Three weeks ago she and her
friends found themselves alone in one of the coldest, most remote
places on earth. Her friends set out in search of help, and now
Laura realises that they are not coming back. So she gathers her
remaining supplies and sets out on an extraordinary journey.
Meanwhile in another city, more and more people arrive every day.
Each has a different story to tell, but their accounts have one
thing in common - it was their final journey. For this is the city
of the dead. And the link between this city and Laura's journey
lies at the heart of this remarkable novel. The Brief History of
the Dead tells a magical story about our lives - about our place in
the world, our connections with each other, and what happens to us
all after our deaths. It is a story of spellbinding power and
imagination, which resonates long after the final page.
