Death is not for the faint of heart, and sometimes the best way to cope is through humor. No one knows this better than comedian Laurie Kilmartin. She made headlines by live-tweeting her father's time in hospice and her grieving process after he passed and channeled her experience into a comedy special, 45 Jokes About My Dead Dad. Dead People Suck is her hilarious guide to surviving (sometimes) death, dying, and grief without losing your mind.

Amazing, funny and beautiful storytelling about a difficult situation we all will face sooner or later - the loss of a loved one. Through humor and wit, Laurie artfully exposes the tender and not so tender moments during her father’s passing and draws you in to each chapter. Everyone with a loved one can benefit from reading this tremendous book.
