Publisher's Summary

Two stories from SUM: Tales from the Afterlives by David Eagleman.
In 'Will-o'-the-Wisp', read by Lemn Sissay, in the afterlife you are invited to sit in a vast comfortable lounge with leather furniture and banks of television monitors, and you watch the world unfold on the glowing screens.
In 'Reins', read by Emily Blunt, you wait in line and discover that the afterlife was long ago given over to committees.
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.
