Au Bonheur des Morts: récits de ceux qui restent

Translated title of the contribution: Our Grateful Dead: Stories of Those Left behind

Vinciane Despret, Stephen Muecke (Translator)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Vinciane Despret’s unique storytelling, woven with ethnography and family history, assembles accounts of those living their daily lives with their dead. She explores how the dead play an active, tangible role through those who are living, who might assume their place in a family or in society; continue their labor or art; or thrive from a shared inheritance or an organ donation.
