I’m reading “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak, a marvelous and moving story. After reading one of the scenes in which Death describes collecting the souls of the war dead, I was thinking about how to describe the book, the characters and the situations they are in, when it became clear that what Death is doing is reminding the readers of the cost of living, surviving and loving. From that thought popped the phrase, the weight of living.
Since the third Nagler book as planned is more about Frank facing his past and other moody things, it seemed like a perfect title.
So, coming soon, after I finish the second one, is “The Weight of Living.”
