In 1995, at the age of forty-two, Robert McCrum suffered a dramatic and near-fatal stroke, the subject of his acclaimed memoir My Year Off. Twenty years on, having lived in the shadow of his own mortality, he has noticed his friends joining him there. Death has become his contemporaries’ every third thought. The question is no longer ‘who am I?’ but ‘how long have I got?’ and ‘what happens next?’ Novelist Penelope Lively, whose memoir Ammonites & Leaping Fish is itself a brilliantly positive reflection on the later stage of our lives, joins Robert in conversation.
