We live in a society where people struggle to look death in the eye. Death has become the territory of professionals and we rarely see a dead body, unless it is someone very close to us. Death has become hidden, and so more traumatic. This book shows that, if we start talking openly about death, it can change the way we live. It is a collection of stories and images about death, dying and bereavement. People from all walks of life share their experiences and what they have learned from accompanying others. Heartbreaking, angry, questioning and contradictory - laugh-aloud funny, even - the stories illuminate, inspire, reassure and inform. They are accompanied by commentaries from professionals working in end-of-life planning, health, bereavement and funeral care.

“An insightful and thought-provoking read.”

When I first began this collection of stories, I felt nervous to read about such a ‘heavy’ (and often avoided) subject. Yet reading each story has uplifted, inspired and added to my existing thoughts about death, and... More

“An important, entertaining and educational book”

This has sparked many brilliant conversations with friends and its mere presence by my bed is often enough to get the ball rolling. I learned a lot more than I expected and I actually laughed a lot more as well! Just... More
