We are pleased to offer for review ‘Dead: A Celebration of Mortality’ by Charles Saatchi (Booth Clibborn, 2015). Expressions of interest are welcome from across the medical humanities.
In this new book ‘Dead: A Celebration of Mortality’, cleverly designed to look like a marble tombstone, (complete with marble edge-stain) Charles Saatchi relates often perversely entertaining stories in a wittily dry style that looks at death and mortality in a coolly amused and detached way.
The 52 brief essays span a wide variety of topics; the Russian mafia, snake eating spiders, Attila the Hun, The Wild West, being run over by your own dog, even laughing yourself to a heart attack!
If you would like to write a review on ‘Dead: A Celebration of Mortality’ (approximately 1,000 words in length), then please consult our reviewer’s guidelines and email our reviews editor with a short explanation of why you are well placed to review the book.
