'My name is Oscar and I'm ten years old . . . They call me Egghead and I look about seven. I live in hospital because of my cancer and I've never written to you because I don't even know if you exist,' writes Oscar in a letter to God. Oscar is ill and no one, especially not his parents, will tell him what he already knows: that he is dying. Granny Rose, the oldest of the 'ladies in pink' who visit Oscar and his fellow patients, makes friends with him. She suggests that he play a game: to pretend that each of the following twelve days is a decade of his imagined future. One day equals ten years, and every night Oscar writes a letter to God telling him about his life. The ten letters that follow are sensitive, funny, heartbreaking and, ultimately, uplifting. Oscar and the Lady in Pink is a small fable with a big heart; it will change the way you feel about death, and life.

Recensioner i media

"* 'Oscar and the Lady in Pink combines story-telling skill with the elegant questioning that Schmitt learnt from his studies of 18th-century French philosophers... When children write to him, they say that, even if they have not been ill themselves, the book has helped them speak about their parents and about solitude, hope and mystery.' Daily Telegraph * 'What's brilliant about Oscar is that we all know we should live each day as our last and we don't. Then you read this book and feel you must try.' Janet McTeer"
