A hidden treasure of Aquin’s oeuvre, The Invention of Death is a story incubated from the author’s early writing days. An incendiary story of jealousy, adultery and suicide, it toes the line between the contemplations of youth and those of maturity. Published fourteen years after Aquin’s death, this mysterious work casts us into a crisis world where God does not exist, paths are volatile, and humanity is fragile in the grips of a vast and unpredictable darkness.

The Invention of Death is strikingly daring, attacking the taboos of our time with unrelenting vigour, mastery, and heartbreaking fragility.
