Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The guide of choice for anyone who plans to die someday--are YOU ready for the AFTERLIFE?

To find out, take this simple quiz:

1.Like Earth, the Afterlife has celebrities, outcasts, deadheads, losers, and busybodies.

True

False

2.Is there an Afterlife after the Afterlife?

Yes

No

3.When you first arrive on "the Other Side," you will be given:

a) a set of wings

b) a toaster

c) a copy of A Newcomer's Guide to the Afterlife

Don't worry if you're not sure how to respond. A Newcomer's Guide to the Afterlife has answers to these questions and more--and if you're lucky, some of them may turn out to be right!

An irreverent, one-of-a-kind compendium from the award-winning author of Ishmael, A Newcomer's Guide to the Afterlife can be read as a parable, an allegory, a work of fiction--or exactly what it claims to be: a helpful handbook for the recently deceased.It is filled with uncommon wisdom, bizarre imaginings, uncanny perceptions, and unexpected humor.Is it fantastic escapism or a seminal event in human history? Read it and find out....

Face it.The Afterlife is the ultimate test.You might as well study.
