Living With the Dead
Andreas Viestad, Vibeke Maria Viestad
Death is universal. Death is something we all have to face. But death also poses a practical problem. What do we do with dead bodies?
Today, we are exposed to details about death on screen and in the media, but what does actually happen after the hearse picks up the deceased? The Viestads live by a cemetery in Oslo and are daily spectators to the routines of the graveyard. Their fascination and curiosity resulted in the writing of this book, in which they dig much deeper than six feet to examine our relationship with the dead.
Death can be an uncomfortable topic. But what if we studied it with curiosity and empathy? The authors of this book take us on a journey
through Norway, the world and into the past.
Living With The Dead is for every reader who understands that their journey through life will eventually come to an end, but who are still
looking for something good to read along the way.
