Publisher's Summary

Two stories from SUM: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman.
In 'Mirrors', read by Noel Fielding, once you've left Earth you are stored in scattered heads around the globe, and in Purgatory these collected bits are held up as mirrors in front of you to see yourself clearly for the first time.
In 'Quantum', read by Jarvis Cocker, everything exists in all possible states at once, even states that are mutually exclusive.
In SUM, David Eagleman entertains 40 fictional possibilities of life beyond death. With wit and humanity, he asks the key questions about existence, hope, technology and love. These stories are full of big ideas and bold imagination.
This release is one of 20 pairings of readings from the audiobook, which assembles a stellar cast of narrators who bring the scenarios of SUM brilliantly alive: Gillian Anderson, Emily Blunt, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker, Jack Davenport, Lisa Dwan, David Eagleman, Noel Fielding, Kerry Fox, Stephen Fry, Clarke Peters, Lemn Sissay and Harriet Walter.
