WAITING FOR THE LAST BUS

Reflections on Life and Death

Written by: Richard Holloway

Published by: Canongate

Price: £14.99

Richard Holloway’s tall, gaunt, cropped figure is a familiar one in Edinburgh. He is our most turbulent priest, uncheckable, endlessly articulate, above correction if not beyond it, a hard act to follow. In 2012 he gave us his biography, Leaving Alexandria: A Memoir of Faith and Doubt. It became a Sunday Times bestseller which has remained a remarkable and evocative account of his ebbing faith. His new book, Waiting for the Last Bus, contains his reflections on death and dying. I approached it a little warily. Was this another right on clergyman, advocating assisted suicide regardless of the unintended consequences for those less well provided for than themselves? I needn’t have worried. This is a far more thoughtful, wiser and even beautiful book. I have always liked and admired Richard Holloway.
