Author and editor Marilyn Johnson was enthralled by the remarkable lives that were marching out of this world -- so she sought out the best obituaries in the English language and the people who spent their lives writing about the dead. She surveyed the darkest corners of Internet chat rooms, and made a pilgrimage to London to savor the most caustic and literate obits of all. Now she leads us on a compelling journey into the cult and culture behind the obituary page and the unusual lives we don’t quite appreciate until they’re gone. The New York Times Book Review calls Johnson’s book “Fascinating . . . Her account of the culture of obituary lovers is downright amazing.” “You’ll be reading aloud from these fan’s notes.” Photos.
