Description
Nobel Prize winner José Saramago continues to write "at the top of the game" (Bookmarks Magazine) in his 80s, as evidenced in this delightful novel that wonders what would happen if death suddenly stopped claiming lives. This of course causes consternation among politicians, religious leaders, morticians, and doctors, and what seems like a boon to most—eternal life—soon becomes a nightmare of practical concerns. Meanwhile death sits in her chilly apartment, where she lives alone with scythe and filing cabinets, and contemplates her experiment: What if no one ever died again? What if she, death with a small d, were to become human and fall in love?

"How can the most tender relationship that Saramago has ever written involve death as a nervous lover? This is a story that can't possibly work or affect us, but it does, deeply, sweetly. It's a novel to die for."—Washington Post
