Die Wise: Stephen Jenkinson

Stephen Jenkinson’s book Die Wise is for everyone who is not going to pull off eternity after all.

He talks of dying well as a moral, political, and spiritual obligation that each person owes their ancestors and their heirs, and describes the North American death trade as death phobic and grief illiterate, able only to deliver on the demand to live, a deep-running culturally-derived adversary rather than a companion with death.
