Review:

Obituaries turns out to be an astonishing book, a profound and even original meditation about death and our only possible answer to it: the way we live. It is also about sex, being a parent, Saroyan's Armenian memories, talks with Dickens's ghosts, Hollywood riffraff, and anything else this wise raconteur, in his inimitable way, deems worthy. Obituaries is solemn, beautiful, hilarious, raunchy, a heart-breakingly sad and funny testament and one of Saroyan's finest books. -- Publishers Weekly
