Sum: Forty Tales of the Afterlives’ – David Eagleman


At once funny, wistful and unsettling, Sum is a dazzling exploration of unexpected afterlives—each presented as a vignette that offers a stunning lens through which to see ourselves in the here and now. In one afterlife, you may find that God is the size of a microbe and unaware of your existence. In another version, you work as a background character in other people’s dreams.

This is a collection of forty short stories, each one offering us a different view of what might, or might not, await us after death. The author, David Eagleman, is a neuroscientist by trade, and it shows in his intimate knowledge of the processes of the human mind and body. The stories are all very short, but are so profound that they demand a slow reading in order to fully appreciate their genius. Be swept away by a series of afterlives where there is only a heaven, only a hell, or neither.
