Memento Mori

I am falling behind in my book tracking!

My latest read was Memento Mori by Muriel Spark. The title is Latin and translates to, "remember you must die." The plot is launched when elderly people begin receiving phone calls from an anonymous caller who reminds them of their impending death. Despite it's morbid theme, the book is quite humourous and looks at aging sometimes with gravity, but mostly tongue-in-cheek-ishly.
