FROM THE AUTHOR OF SPACEMAN OF BOHEMIA, SOON TO BE A MAJOR NETFLIX FILM STARRING ADAM SANDLER AND CAREY MULLIGAN'Ambitious, exciting . . . touches of Don DeLillo' Daily Telegraph'A Kurt Vonnegut-like satirical touch' New York Times'Inventive and heartfelt . . . packs a walloping punch' EsquireAdéla, diagnosed with a terminal illness, leaves her Czech village for America to reunite with her daughter Tereza, now a scientist at a New York biotech company hellbent on curing mortality.

Their reunion is short, and before Tereza can help her mother, Adéla dies and her remains disappear. But Adéla's spirit survives, restlessly watching over Tereza as she searches for the body on a journey that spans oceans and continents, through a world ravaged by corporate greed and political extremism.

Witty and prescient, A Brief History of Living Forever is a vivid story of family connection prevailing in the face of societal collapse.
