Jim Crace’s Being Dead is a fabulous book. It’s a beautifully written story, effortlessly switching between past and present. A simple story about the slaughter of a couple, this is no crime novel, but rather a love and death story. Be warned that it deals with the details of death in an extremely detailed though sensitive way. This is the third novel I’ve read by the author, and it’s the best. Highly recommended.
