Dead People Suck : A Guide for Survivors of the Newly Departed Hardback
Laurie Kilmartin is an Emmy nominated writer for CONAN, the coauthor of the New York Times bestselling book Sh*tty Mom, a cohost of The Jackie and Laurie Show, and a stand-up comic.
In 2014, she made headlines by live tweeting her father's time in hospice and her grieving process after he passed.
Laurie's hilarious tweets took the world by storm, showing the need for a comic interpretation of grief.
Dead People Suck is an honest, irreverent, and laugh-out-loud guide to grief.
Full of hilarity and very real advice, the book is broken down into six sections: a guide for the dying, a guide for loved ones, advice on the process of dying, the ins and outs of grief and funeral preparation, the various stages of mourning, and a bonus tips chapter for friends and bystanders.
With chapters like "The Real Obit: He Died At Home, Surrounded by Loved Ones Who Were Texting On Their iPhones" and "The First Time You Tell a Telemarketer, 'She Can't Come to the Phone Right Now Because She Is Dead,"' this book will offer a necessary resource - full of pragmatic tips on everything from funeral preparation to condolences - without overwhelming the reader with sentiment.
Dead People Suck is the perfect read for navigating life's most complicated moments with a sense of humour, humility, and perspective.
