Description
Most of the people in this book will die before the fifth paragraph. You probably haven't heard of any of them. That doesn't mean it's a book about nobodies. That doesn't mean it is a book about death. The obituaries collected here are at times humorous, (""The Woman Who Outlived Her Tombstone"") and at times heartbreaking (""Love Stories from a Plane Crash""). They shine a light into forgotten places (""How to Build a Mountain"") and forgotten lives (""TGhe shortest Obituary on the Page""). Inside are countless lessons of life, taught by people we all pass on the street every day. It's not too late to meet them.
