‘One of the funniest and most original writers at work today’ The Times
A firecracker of a novel by the Booker-shortlisted author of A Fraction of the Whole – a scathingly funny and affecting tale of life, death, love and the questionable existence of God.
Angus Mooney is not happy – he’s been murdered, cut off in the prime of his life. He feels humiliated – he’s never even believed in an afterlife. (How wrong he’d been). He’s confused – death has provided more questions than answers. And he desperately misses his audacious and fiery wife, Gracie, who’s expecting their first child.
The only upside is that Angus has found a way to see what his murderer is up to, and how Gracie is faring. The downside: Gracie and his murderer are getting uncomfortably close, and a worldwide pandemic means the afterlife is about to get very crowded . . .
