Sometimes the best part of a show is the curtain call, when the job is done and the actors bask in their well-deserved accolades. Here is a wonderful book filled with curtain calls. Count me among those on my feet and applauding like mad. --Stephen King --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This then is a book for those who are fascinated by those readings. It starts with the New York Times obituaries in August 2010 to July of 2011. They are in chronological order - the politicians, the media stars, and the heroes. There are pictures with many, but it is the words that we read that tell the story, the facts of their lives: Eddie Fisher, Elizabeth Taylor, David Nelson, Sparky Anderson, and Captain Beefheart...all remembered among others.
A general index and a specialty index are included in this strangely engrossing book.
