Thoughtful, subtle, elegantly clever and oddly joyous, Every Third Thought is beautiful and - most of all - true
Every Third Thought is an important book, and one that brings death into the light, uncovering both the losses we have to endure, as well as the gifts we can receive if we are open to it. Profoundly moving and fascinating. It is a gem.
As an assemblage of great quotes and prompts for further reading, Every Third Thought rivals DJ Enright's anthology The Oxford Book of Death. McCrum adds striking metaphors of his own.
A wry and reflective treatise on mortality . . . fascinating and paradoxically enjoyable
