The Heaven of Mercury jellemzők

Finus Bates - reporter, radio host and obituary writer - aims to have the last word on Mercury's inhabitants: from obsequious undertaker Parnell Grimes to Euple Scarbrough, local encyclopaedia of useless knowledge. Loyal to elegant Birdie Wells for 80 years, Finus won't rush to unravel the mystery of her husband's death - not until Birdie herself has entered Mercury's heaven. Magnificently written, this is a sumptuous portrayal of lifelong friendship, restless passion, marital discord, aging and transcendence.
