The first page of this book outlines an African belief system where humans come in three types. These types are: a) living people: thats us folks! The ones who are alive, moving around, making our way in the world b) remembered people: these are those people who have died, but who are remembered by someone living. c) those who are general ancestors, who may be named, but aren't remembered by anyone currently alive. This is the basis for the book. Two strands run through the book. The first is the life of Laura, stranded in a polar base in Antarctica. The second is the population of the city of the remembered dead. There aren't any real twists or turns in the novel, the interest comes through the very human stories in the city of the dead. However the story is beautifully and enticingly told. Yet again my Mother-in-Law comes good (she suggested it to me!)
