Beschreibung


An endlessly entertaining anthology of last words, from the famous, the infamous and those, apparently, with an eye for posterity.


Paul Berra: Paul Berra is a musician, writer and comedian, often prone to uttering 'last words' in moments of existential crisis. He will go down in history as the unfortunate who muttered the words 'I'm only here for the bier' at Malcolm McLaren's funeral. The author lives next to a grave yard in rural England.
