Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In 48 glorious full-color pages, Ken Tanaka's outrageous, macabre mock children's book takes adults inside mortality. Everybody Dies prepares grown-ups for the moment when they too will float to the top of life's aquarium. Whether you're about to permanently wipe-out in a surfing accident or awaiting a slow demise by pestilence, this book will prepare you—or at least keep you grinning. This handy hardcover even includes a friendly quiz to match the victim with the cause of death. Grisly fun.

Meet the Author

Born in Los Angeles as Ken Smith, Ken Tanaka was adopted by a Japanese family and raised in rural Shimane Prefecture. At the age of thirty-three, Ken returned to Los Angeles to search for his birth parents with only their names, Jonathan and Linda Smith. He documented his search on YouTube and quickly become an online sensation. His award-winning videos include the viral hit "What Kind of Asian Are You?", the White Samurai series, and "What Is Art?" In late 2007 Ken was reunited with his long-lost twin brother and "Everybody Dies" coauthor, David Ury, via YouTube (search Ken Tanaka meets David Ury on YouTube). The two of them have been collaborating every since. When en is not buys with his search for the Smiths, he spends his time painting funny people and animals. In 2009 the famed Los Angeles gallery Billy Shire Fine Arts held his now-historic inaugural art show, "Maximum Pleasant," a humorous blend of Japanese and American pop culture.

Author, actor, and stand-up comic David Ury has a long history with death. While he is best known for getting crushed by an ATM as the character Spooge in AMC's "Breaking Bad", he has been shot, bitten, impaled, and stabbed to death countless times in American films and television programs. David's first acting role was in a high school production of "Riders to the Sea". He played the role of Bartley, and Irish fisherman who spent most of the play lying dead onstage, which made his mother cry. He has written nearly one hundred English language adaptations of foreign comics including "Me and the Devil Blues", which won a Glyph Award in 2009.
