You do not have to be a person of faith though it would probably help if you had an interest in matters of faith.
About the Book: In late 1950s London, something uncanny besets a group of elderly friends: a voice on the telephone informs each, “Remember you must die.”
Their geriatric leathers are soon thoroughly ruffled by these perhaps supernatural phone calls, and in the resulting flurry many old secrets are dusted off. Cracks appear on the once decorous surface of their lives––unsavories like blackmail and adultery are now to be glimpsed. Spooky, poignant and wickedIy hilarious, Memento Mori may deal in death, but it is a book which leaves one relishing life all the more.
