Overview

Death can be a tricky business and you only have one chance to get it right—best do some research while you still have time! Gathered in these pages are some of the most (in)famous dead people that the world has ever known, including George Washington, Bette Davis, and Al Capone. The first section offers some of the witty epitaphs, while the second is packed with amusing quotations. Check these out: Alfred Hitchcock’s “I’m involved in a plot,” Jack Benny’s “Did you hear about my operation?,” and H.G. Wells’s “I told you so, damnit!” Another section honors memorable last words, both candid and thoughtful. It’s a rare look at celebrities’ most private moments, helpfully collated for your macabre amusement.
