Death In The Family?,
This review is from: The Grim Reader: Writings on Death, Dying, and Living on (Paperback)
I bought this book out of a dark, morbid, meloncholic, curiousity. But that's just the way I am. Other people should buy this book if they are dealing with someone elses death or their own impending. It's, for the most part, a good read. Near the end it trails off, but the first few sections are amazing. The last chapter is "Hamlet: The Graveyard" so it ends well. There's Monty Python, George Orwell, Samual Clemons, Robert Luis Stephanson, John Keats, and Freud. Also about a hundred others. The Fear of Death and the fear of living after death (Someone elses) Are of the many topics addressed. I recommend it for anyone. This book of Death just might teach you how to live.
