Joseph and Celice Adkins first fell in love as zoology students on a field trip to Baritone Bay. Thirty   years later, on a nostalgic trip back to the dunes where they first made love, they’re brutally   murdered.  With the crime scene undiscovered for days, we shift back and forth in time, travelling   through their lives from their early romance, to the day their bodies are finally found caught in one   final embrace.

Being Dead is a bittersweet look at loss, the way fate shapes our lives and a mesmerising vision of the   power of love to endure. First published by legendary Penguin Books imprint Viking, Jim Crace’s Being   Dead was named on the New York Times 10 Best Books of the Year and winner of the National Book   Critics Circle Award for Fiction.
