Sunday Times bestselling author

An examination of how we make sense of the world, from the Sunday Times bestselling author.

Throughout history we have told ourselves stories to try and make sense of what it all means: our place in a small corner of one of billions of galaxies, at the end of billions of years of existence. In this new work Richard Holloway takes us on a personal, scientific and philosophical journey to explore what he believes the answers to the biggest of questions are. He examines what we know about the universe into which – without any choice in the matter – we are propelled at birth and from which we are expelled at death; the stories we have told about where we come from; and the stories we tell to get through this muddling experience of life. Thought-provoking, revelatory, compassionate and playful, Stories We Tell Ourselves is a personal reckoning with life’s mysteries by one of the most important and beloved thinkers of our time.

'Holloway writes with passion and honesty at all times, and the result is compelling.'

'An inclusive and hugely nourishing reminder to take stock of our mortality ... Elegant, elegiac and thought-provoking.'
The Observer

'Thought-provoking, revelatory, grave and comforting. It is impossible not to be moved by it in the most profound way.'
Alexander McCall Smith
