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!
