Death of Long Pig

Nigel Planer,

Nick Hern Books

Two great artists - Robert Louis Stevenson and Paul Gauguin - confront their own mortality in the strange and supernatural Polynesian islands they made their home.

Deep in the Polynesian islands of the Pacific Ocean, hungry spirits circle the homes of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson and artist Paul Gaugin, who lived and died on the islands only a few years apart.

Stevenson has spent thirty years in rigorous combat with the Grim Reaper, but is he finally ready to concede defeat? Gauguin has bought rum, arsenic and morphine for his suicide cocktail and is certain he's not long for this world, but he'll be damned if they give him a Catholic burial in consecrated ground.

As their final hours approach, they face the eternal question: is it how we prepare for death that really governs the way we live?
