The Brief History of the Dead Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This richly imaginative novel is set on Earth and in the City, an Earth-like place where the recent dead live as long as they are remembered by those still alive. Among the residents of the City are Marion and Phillip Byrd, who are falling in love with each other again even after a decade on marriage while they were alive. Their daughter, Laura, is on Earth--trapped in an Antarctic research station. With supplies running out, Laura is racing against time to survive--and her memories of her parents are fading. With consummate skill, Brockmeier twines together these stories to create a vivid connection between the living and the dead.
