If the dead could speak, what would they say to the living?

If the dead could speak, what would they say to the living?

From their graves in the field, the oldest part of Paulstadts cemetery, the towns late inhabitants tell stories from their lives. Some recall just a moment, perhaps the one in which they left this world, perhaps the one that they now realize shaped their life forever. Some remember all the people they've been with, or the only person they ever loved.

These voices together young, old, rich poor build a picture of a community, as viewed from below ground instead of from above. The streets of the small, sleepy provincial town of Paulstadt are given shape and meaning by those who lived, loved, worked, mourned and died there.

From the author of the Booker International-shortlisted A Whole Life, Robert Seethalers The Field is about what happens at the end. It is a book of human lives each one different, yet connected to countless others that ultimately shows how life, for all its fleetingness, still has meaning.
