SHORTLISTED FOR THE GORDON BURN PRIZE.
Mrs Death tells her intoxicating story in this life-affirming fire-starter of a novel. Mrs Death has had enough. She is exhausted by her job and now seeks someone to unburden her conscience to. She meets Wolf, a troubled young writer, who - enthralled by her stories - begins to write Mrs Death's memoirs.
As the two reflect on the losses they have experienced (or facilitated), their friendship flourishes. All the while, despite her world-weariness, Death must continue to hold humans' fates in her hands, appearing in our lives when we least expect her . .
