About this title


Famous people tend to lose their inhibitions as they are dying & say things out of character that have been preying on their minds perhaps for years. Gyles Brandreth has collected last words all of his life. He has also found interesting epitaphs on the tombstones in the English-speaking world which tell a great deal about the people beneath. And for the third kind of last word, he has gathered the best rejoinders & squelches of an insulting nature which really "put down" stuffy or interfering people. He reveals numerous gems of dark humor, genius & jest from famous people, & for good measure he has provided a quiz.
