This is the Life Summary

This is the Life by Alex Shearer

There are books that immerse you. There are books that move you to tears. There are books that make you better appreciate life. This is one of them.

"I don't have much advice to give anyone; I've learned very little in my life; but here's a gem of wisdom. Don't take a dying man's kettle away. You won't be doing him any favours. Nor yourself either."
This is the story of Louis, who never quite fitted in, and of his younger brother who always tagged along.
Two brothers on one final journey together, wading through the stuff that is thicker than water.
Tender-hearted, at times achingly funny, This is the Life is a moving testimony to both the resilience of the human spirit and to the price of strawberries.

`Beautifully done... A fine book on mortality and siblinghood' Broadcaster Libby Purves
