About this book
A philosophical meditation on facing death, from the late art critic and illustrator Lubbock. In 2008, he was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour and told he had only 2 years to live. He actually survived for 3 years, dying in 2011, and here he turns over the fact of his mortality and wrestles with the question of how to live, knowing we're going to die.
A unique reckoning with the human condition, written in beautiful, honest, unsentimental and aphoristic prose.
