SUM Forty Tales from the Afterlives

Regular price $14.95

At once funny, wistful and unsettling, Sum is a dazzling exploration of unexpected afterlives - each presented as a vignette that offers a stunning lens through which to see ourselves in the here and now.  

In one afterlife, you may find that God is the size of a microbe and unaware of your existence.  In another version, you work as a background character in other people's dreams.  Or you may find that God is a married couple, or that the universe is running backward, or that you are forced to live out your afterlife with annoying versions of who you could have been.  With a probing imagination and deep understanding of the human condition, acclaimed neuroscientist David Eagleman offers wonderfully imagined tales that shine a brilliant light on the here and now.
