Viernes / “The brief history of the dead” by Kevin Brockmeier

“The City is not unlike those on earth: it has parks and streets, stores and restaurants, garbage and homelessness — all of the pleasures and problems of modern life. This City, however, is inhabited by the recently departed, who reside there only as long as they remain in the memories of the living. Kevin Brockmeier interweaves two stories in a spellbinding tale of human connection, self-preservation, and the future of mankind. The Brief History of the Dead is the work of a remarkably gifted writer.”
