Product Description

In Carol Rumens’s Bezdelki, small things help to shore up the memory of a life. These elegies for her late partner, Yuri Drobyshev, explore the principle that death – even for atheists – isn’t purely loss. Instead, a kind of conversation between two people can be continued through willed acts of memory, whether by rooting through a toolbox or by revisiting well-loved books. Bezdelki shares with us this moving, many-textured communication.

With black-and-white illustrations by Emma Wright.
