Stuff

A Memoir of Death and Life




A superlative memoir, the equal of Richard Wollheim’s Germs or Blake Morrison’s And When Did You Last See Your Father?

A few months after two of his parents had died, Martin Rowson had a dream about the house he grew up in which was crammed with tons and tons of stuff, both physical and emotional. In this book Rowson delves into all that ‘stuff’; weaving together dreams, family anecdotes and gossip, jokes, advice, history, smells, sounds and sights of the past. The result is a funny, thought-provoking and ultimately moving meditation on families, life, love, disease and the existentialist horrors of clearing out the attic.
