About the Book

Most unusual, very convincing, a good read but also thought-provoking and moving, especially at the end. The inclusion of music and dance really works and it has so much to say that is really important about life and about death. A real tour de force.                                                                                                                                                              Carole Bromley

A thought-provoking, well-written novel about a future in which the effects of climate change are tangible and older people are forced to die the ‘noble death’ … this is also a touching portrait of a friendship that comes close to love.  Mark McCrum
