Daily Telegraph Third Book of Obituaries

'a splendid anthology, both hilarious and melancholy' Spectator

Witty, enchanting, engaging and moving, Hugh Massingberd's third collection of Daily Telegraph obituaries ranges in scope from well-known entertainers like Liberace and Kenneth Williams to more obscure characters such as the one-time world's fattest man and a little-known pantomime dame. This wonderfully varied, rich and humorous book will appeal to all tastes.

'a funny and moving collection' Paul Bailey
