Life, death, truth . . .
Can you still be a brother when your brother is dead? Lucas often wonders. His brother Marius has died, leaving Lucas alone with their parents. When their mother decides to burn Marius's belongings in a ceremonial bonfire, Lucas saves his brother's diary and makes it his own by writing in it. And so begins a dialogue between brothers, the dead and the living, from which truths emerge, truths of life and death and love.
Winner of the Silver Award for Dutch Teenage Literature 1997, the German Youth Literature Prize 1999, and voted Best Teenage Book on German radio, this astonishing tale of self and brotherhood is now available in English for the first time.
