Meet Death, as you have never met her before.
Even the Birds Grow Silent is a collection of narrative fragments told by Death herself.
Death feels she gets a very bad press nowadays, and is keen to tell her side of the story.
From singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, to writer Virginia Woolf, to the tragic life of Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days' Queen, Death has walked in their shadows and now, for the first time, shares her insights on them.
She was there at the dawn of time, when the first cave paintings were created, and she will be with us until the end. However, she does have one final surprise up her sleeve. . .
