We will be proud to have this novel published by Editura Paralela 45. We were all, myself and my fellow colleagues, impressed by it, and I think it has to do with our eternal fascination with death, the perpetual question of ”what are we, where are we going”, and Laura Lindstedt offers us such a penetrating description of the state after death, in a multi-level, multi-register narrative, from the biological to the philosophical perspective of human essence.”
