WHO AWAITS YOU, ON THAT SPARKLING SILVER PLANE

This book is a complete guide for the living, an encyclopedia for the old, a regimen for the ill, a blessing for the departed.

The five sections included within cover life, old age, illness, and death, musing on everything from the flesh, to the mind, economics, disease, healthcare and family to funerals and how to prepare for the inevitable. With a colourful imagination and insightful observations, Jane Jian invites readers into the minds of the elderly to experience the psychological transformations of those who are coming to terms with their own withering away.

‘Life and death are both precious and rare, each coming but once, and so as we mourn for a life gone, we must also face the inevitability of death, a tribute to a life finally concluded.’
