What Memories Are Made Of

Published by Diogenes as Was bleibt, wenn wir sterben
Original Title: Was bleibt, wenn wir sterben

After the death of her parents, the journalist Louise Brown tries to extract something meaningful from the finitude of life. She becomes a funeral orator, and a witness to what remains of us when we die. This alters her perspective not only on death, but on life too. She gifts us with unforgettable images, reminding us of what makes us human. A reassuring and liberating book which encourages the reader to focus on the things that matter in life.
