Granta 27: Death

Summer 1989

A story becomes a story once it has an ending, and there is no ending more powerful than death. But what of death itself? Here, fourteen writers and photographers set out to look at it: John Gregory Dunne, Adam Mars-Jones, Mary McCarthy, Edmund White, Louise Erdrich, Michael Ignatieff, John Treherne, and eerie death faces by photographer Rudolph Schäfer.
