An erudite and inspiring journey into what we lose, what remains and what we can pass on. A Tour of Bones is wise, kind, magpie-curious and shines with a love of life * David Mitchell *
A beautifully-written book ... One which celebrates not death but life, and how, by confronting the fear and inevitability of our end, we can embrace life and live it more abundantly * P D James *
Sceptical, funny, frank and shot through with a sparkling zest for life * Spectator *
Denise Inge's jewel of a memoir is suffused with an indomitable spirit * Times *
This is a book full of tenderness, hope and love * Times Higher Education *
A thoughtful writer who believed her terminal diagnosis made life more "delicious," Inge's bone tour illuminates the expansive difference "between the humdrum everyday and heaped mortality." An adventurous and macabre tribute to the eternal longevity of human bones. * Kirkus Reviews *
This beautiful, profound, honest, and at times deliciously witty book moves with seeming effortlessness between the small things that detain us and the great truths that enclose us, the domestic and the eternal ... A testament of courage, vision and thought that makes life burn more brightly in [its] readers * Times Literary Supplement *
