Publisher's Summary

Two stories from SUM: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman.
In 'Angst', read by Emily Blunt, when you die you expand back into the enormous size you really are - standing ten thousand kilometres tall in each of nine dimensions, and live with others like you in a celestial commune.
In 'Subjunctive', read by David Eagleman, in the afterlife you are not judged against other people, but against yourself, and what you could have been.
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.
