“I am over 70 when I reread Memento Mori, now with renewed interest and appreciation.”
Muriel Spark’s dark and snarky novel about death and old age delighted me when I first read it, but now it takes on extra pungency, and writing about it in the context of my own experience seemed the thing to do.
I’m happy to say that “Spoiler Alert: They All Died” was published in the excellent literary magazine Epiphany.
