Read full description of the books:
Don't let the title fool you: this isn't a morbid book. It's a collection of stories about death and dying, yes, but death isn't morbid in itself. Death is a fact, sudden or sad, tragic or inevitable, and it can leave us bereft - but it isn't morbid. Our perception of it often is. But it doesn't have to be.
This is a collection of seven stories about death and dying, five of them new to this book and two published before, in another collection. They're a little about how we deal with death, the fact of it, and how we can never be prepared, no matter how much advance notice we have. They're a little about honouring the dead, a little about living in their honour, but mostly they're about being alive. My stories about death are about life, after all: the life that preceded the death and how life carries on after, despite it. And that's the opposite of morbid. It might even be uplifting if you let it, if you choose to see it that way; because the dead lived among us once and that's why we miss them, and those of us who remember them are still alive.
The dead don’t need anything from us; it’s the living that need our kindness. All we can do for the dead, if we feel that something must be done, is to use the privileges of the living. To laugh, and cry, and ring the bells and turn up when we’re needed. To find our better place in this life, and live it in the most uncontained way possible, and be more careful of the memories we make than the memories we’ll keep.

Read information about the authorDaphne Kapsali is a writer, reluctant yogi, and pathological optimist - among many other things. In 2014, she gave up her life in London to spend the autumn and winter writing on a remote Greek island; the result, a book entitled "100 days of solitude" – 100 separate and interconnected stories on claiming the time and space to live as your true self and do what you love – was published in March 2015 and has become an unexpected bestseller. She has since published another seven books, all of which are available from Amazon.
