Stalked By Death
The only certainty in life is inevitable death. Some cultures celebrate that fact, while others brush all talk of mortality firmly under the carpet. Heavyweight literary critic Robert McCrum has been concerned with his own death since suffering a near-fatal stroke in 1995, and has sought clarity on its inevitability by meeting medical professionals, the terminally ill and, of course, writers. He discusses his story with Richard Holloway. This event will be recorded for BBC Radio Scotland.
