All That Remains

A Life in Death

Sue Black

'Sue Black’s utterly gripping account of her life and career as a professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology. ' - Guardian. A model of how to write about the effect of human evil without losing either objectivity or sensitivity' - Rowan Williams, New Statesman
Sue Black confronts death every day. As a professor of anatomy and forensic anthropology, she focuses on mortal remains in her lab, at burial sites, at scenes of violence, murder and criminal dismemberment, and when investigating mass fatalities due to war, accident or natural disaster. In All That Remains she reveals the many faces of death she has come to know, using key cases to explore how forensic science has developed, and examining what her life and work has taught her.
Part memoir, part science, part meditation on death, her book is compassionate, surprisingly funny, and it will make you think about death in a new light.
