The Letter from Death:
In The Letter from Death, Lillian Moats constructs an astonishing appraisal of humanity through the eyes of Death itself. As an insightful, philosophical and surprisingly witty narrator, Death takes a tour through the follies of human past, present and future to approach seemingly complex matters with a simple clarity. At once unsettling and comforting, tragic and comic, provocative and wise, The Letter from Death is an insightful examination of humanity that will give thoughtful readers quite a lot to think about.
