'The Brief History of the Dead' by Kevin Brockmeier

"I was completely riveted by the idea that the dead live on in a city of their own, as long as someone who is still alive has a memory of them. The underlying story of a worldwide pandemic strikes a timely chord that gives the book even more resonance. I couldn't put it down."

From Cyndi, who listens to WCMU in Michigan
