Obit by Jim Sheeler

Like Everything I Really Needed to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten, or Tuesdays with Morrie, Obit is a wise and deeply moving book that illuminates the human condition. For ten years, Jim Sheeler has scoured Colorado looking for subjects whose stories he will tell for the last time. Most are unknowns, but that doesn?t mean they?re nobodies. Their obituaries are sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreaking, and chock full of life lessons as taught by the people we all pass on the street every day. And thanks to Sheeler?s brilliant and compassionate prose, it?s not too late to meet them.

This is an interesting concept for a book... It's the obituaries 'ordinary' people who were anything but ordinary within their community. Some are sad, some funny but all of them are interesting. It's a quick glimpse into someone else's life after they've passed on...
