I embarked on a mission to create a simple list of weird book recommendations that would look great (and possibly frighten guests) on your coffee table. Instead I accidentally assembled a rather profound exploration of humanity’s most primal anxiety: Death.
As far as anyone can tell, no one has ever actually lived forever, be it physically or spiritually. However, that does not end our tireless efforts to keep death at bay, or the eternal struggle to accept our seemingly inescapable fates.
These books delve into the science of mortality and the veneration of death, a macabre look at the dark side that exists in the desperate pursuit of life.
