The Daily Telegraph Book of Obituaries edited by Hugh Massingberg

The Daily Telegraph Book of Obituaries edited by Hugh Massingberd: This collection of the lives of memorable individuals was often entertaining and never morbid. As an American I didn’t understand all of the terminology and abbreviations, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment. And while I wished more than a few times that I’d known some of these characters personally, all in all it felt too long, like too many obits were included. It took me a very long time to finish. I’d recommended reading it in small doses, or picking ones to read at random, rather than reading straight through like I did.
