`I would get out of the car at every shopping centre and want to ask the stranger walking by with their trolley: ¿Why are you still shopping? Someone I love has died.¿¿ ¿ Dela Gwala

Death is a fact of life, but the experience of grief is unique to each of us. This timely collection brings together a range of voices to offer refl ections on death and dying, from individual losses to large scale catastrophes.

Karin Schimke revisits her troubled relationship with her late father, a Second World War survivor `whose brain had been broken by violence¿. Madeleine Fullard, the head of South Africa¿s Missing Persons Task Team, draws us into the search for activists who were `disappeared¿ or went missing in political circumstances between 1960 and 1994. Caine Prize winner Lidudumalingani remembers his childhood in a small village in the Eastern Cape, and how his mother always listened to death notices read over the radio as a way of bearing witness to the grief of strangers.

The other contributors in this poignant and thought-provoking anthology turn their minds to subjects as varied as the ritual of washing the body of the deceased before burial, the ethics of killing small animals, and the extinction of humankind.

In a time of relentless grief, Our Ghosts Were Once People reminds us that one of the small consolations of literature is that all sorrows can be borne.
