Media Review – Waiting for the Last Bus

Death – bit of a worry?

Richard Holloway’s thoughtful latest book, Waiting for the Last Bus: Reflections on Life and Death is reviewed by the smallVOICE team in June’s podcast.

You can listen to what they made of it at 5’30 minutes in to the podcast.

From Canongate Books:

Where do we go when we die? Or is there nowhere to go? Is death something we can do or is it just something that happens to us? Now in his ninth decade, former Bishop of Edinburgh Richard Holloway has spent a lifetime at the bedsides of the dying, guiding countless men and women towards peaceful deaths. In Waiting for the Last Bus, he presents a positive, meditative and profound exploration of the many important lessons we can learn from death: facing up to the limitations of our bodies as they falter, reflecting on our failings, and forgiving ourselves and others.
