Two Guys Read the Obituaries
This is the book that tells us why piano players outlive drummers; who the last living flying monkey from the film The Wizard of Oz was; and reveals where we go after we die. It also may just be the funniest book ever written about death. Each of the two authors combed the obituary pages every day for a calendar year. They wrote about the Reaper's usual harvest-the famous, the infamous, and the fascinating. As in Two Guys Read Moby-Dick, their first joint project, they refused to be corralled by format and wound up writing about . . . well, basically whatever their minds bumped into. The collision is always interesting and often irreverent.These two professional writers, who have been friends since childhood, took up the challenge to be the first two people ever to read Moby-Dick from cover to cover. The result was the critically-acclaimed, popular book: Two Guys Read Moby-Dick. Now comes the sequel-the alarmingly funny and profound: Two Guys Read the Obituaries.
