Description
Nothing makes it quite so satisfying to embrace the loveliness of life's ordinary moments than the prospect of a spectacularly dumb death, says Cynthia Ceilán. In her follow-up to Thinning the Herd, she invites us to consider the fates of these unwitting newsmakers: elderly shepherdess Betty Stobbs rode her motorbike up the hill to feed her charges, and was run off the road and into a ravine by her own stampeding herd of hungry sheep. Jose Ricart walked up and down a busy street carrying a sign proclaiming that the end of the world is nigh—until a truck ran over and killed him. And Boro Mandic miraculously survived a horrific car crash without a scratch; on the walk home from the hospital, however, he was run over by a train.
