Information from electronic data provided by the publisher. May be incomplete or contain other coding.

In this new book, cleverly designed to look like a marble tombstone (complete with marble edge-stain), Charles Saatchi relates often perversely entertaining stories that look at death and mortality in a coolly amused and detached way. In 52 brief essays--sometimes dark, sometimes droll--and including 50 illustrations, Saatchi spans a wide variety of topics; the Russian mafia, snake-eating spiders, Attila the Hun, the Wild West, being run over by your own dog, even laughing yourself into a heart attack.
