Most neuroscientists do not publish books of short fiction, particularly fiction about the afterlife. David Eagleman, however, is not your typical neuroscientist. He also studied English literature in college, which explains the lyrical, elegant tone of his work, and has also long been fascinated with different takes on the afterlife. Each short story in this collection is an image of what life after death could look like, and each is as fascinating as the last. This is a book that begs to be read out loud. Share it with everyone you know. You will be immensely popular.
