Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her fourth book, Lillian Moats constructs an astonishing appraisal of humanity through the eyes of Death itself. As an insightful, philosophical and witty narrator, Death takes a tour through the follies of human past, present and future to approach seemingly complex matters with startling directness.

Full of intelligent humour and deep insights, this book will engage and enlighten as it offers new perspectives on religion, militarism and the contradictions between human desires and actions. By drawing a connection between our unexamined fear of death and our unnecessary pursuit of war, Moats challenges readers to question whether humans are really violent warmongers by nature, or do we yearn to protect life? David J Moats' haunting and powerful illustrations will leave the issues burning in your mind. The book is introduced with a foreword by Howard Zinn, the renowned historian, activist, playwright and author of A People's History of the United States.

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 a lot to think about.
