Harald-Alexander  Korp - What's There to Laugh About at the End?


Meeting mortality with humour

Laughter in the face of illness, dying and death – isn't that in bad taste?

Not for Harald-Alexander Korp. On the contrary, laughter is relaxing, helps when we are at a loss for words and gives us a sense of relief. In this book, he looks at how humour can help towards coming to terms better with dying and death. People at the end of life, relatives and above all carers and nurses discover here how humour as the opposite of fear can create distance and strengthen the power to let go.

With many caricatures, real-life reports and a myriad of practical tasks.
