It is thought that, after decapitation, the human brain can remain active for up to ninety seconds.

An abstract tour of human history, Severance delves into the thoughts of the recently beheaded. From Cicero to Marie Antoinette, Jayne Mansfield to John the Baptist, a cast of victims from across time and humanity present a bittersweet account of life on Earth, and the inescapable moment of death.

Adapted from a collection of short stories by Pulitzer Prize winning author Robert Olen Butler, these brief but urgent tales rend misery from mortality, carving enlightenment into a deadly truth. [Severance: Stories published by Chronicle Books LLC (c) 2006]
