Announcing the next in our series of WhollyBooks occasional chapbooks: after ’The Sun At Midnight’, ‘Aleister Crowley & the Yi-King’ and ‘The Forgotten Agent’ & ‘The Magical Universe of William S Burroughs’, our next offering will be ‘Last Rites’ by Emma Doeve & Matthew Levi Stevens. Although in part drawing from pre-existing materials, ‘Last Rites’ was originally written starting 31st October 2011, and is the first collaborative text written by Emma & Matthew, weaving together their individual experiences, observations, and writing styles to develop something greater than the sum of its parts…
Part memoir, part memento mori, part meditation on funeral rites, loss, and remembrance.
