Synopsis

In the tradition of Mary Roach's bestselling Stiff and Jessica Mitford's classic expose The American Way of Death comes this meticulously researched and refreshingly irreverent look at death from acclaimed author Harold Schechter. With his trademark fearlessness and bracing sense of humor, Schechter digs deep into a wealth of sources to unearth a treasure trove of surprising facts, amusing anecdotes, practical information, and timeless wisdom about that undiscovered country to which we will all one day travel. Topics include: ● Death anxiety—is your fear of death normal or off the scale? ● You can't take it with you . . . or can you? Wacky wills and bizarre bequests ● The hospice experience—going out in comfort and style ● Deathbed and funeral etiquette—how to help the dying and mourn the dead with dignity ● Death on demand—why the right-to-die movement may be the next big thing ● "Good-bye everybody"—famous last words
