Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives
Author: David Eagleman
Publisher: Viking Canada
Price: $26 (Hardcover)
What happens to us after we die? Neuroscientist David Eagleman has 40 fictional answers, each blending science with imagination. In Circle of Friends, the afterlife looks and feels like real life, but the only people who populate it are those you know. In Angst, the afterlife sees our bodies grow 10,000 kilometres tall, across nine dimensions, and it’s our job to maintain the cosmos. Eagleman’s stories contain wit and reflections on theism, love and regret.
