'In Pursuit of Memory: The fight against Alzheimer’s' by Joseph Jebelli

'Plot 29: A memoir' by Allan Jenkins

'The White Book' by Han Kang translated by Deborah Smith

'With the End in Mind: Dying, death and wisdom in an age of denial' by Kathryn Mannix

'Midwinter Break' by Bernard MacLaverty

'To Be a Machine: Adventures among cyborgs, utopians, hackers, and the futurists solving the modest problem of death' by Mark O’Connell
