Shinde ikikaerimashita repo (Report of Death and Rebirth)
MURAKAMI Takeo [Japan]
This is a non-fiction piece by the author who miraculously revived from cardiopulmonary arrest. Even after the resuscitation, the author was in dangerously critical condition because of various complications and cerebral edema. Supported by his family and the doctor in charge, an unimaginable series of experiences to “start one’s life over” from a critical condition is depicted innovatively from a perspective only possible from the one who lived through it.
