Omtale: Death Becomes Them
"Death Becomes Them" is an eye-opening and entertaining look into the lonely, personal nightmares behind celebrity suicides. Strauss' subjects range from Virginia Woolf to Kurt Cobain, from Elliott Smith to Adolf Hitler and from Mark Rothko to Anne Sexton. Tragic and often bizarre, Strauss unearths today's most talked about and monumental suicides that have impacted us while paying tribute to these lost souls. Each death is as diverse as the person that killed himself. Some are tragic - Dorothy Dandridge was found naked on her bathroom floor, a handful of anti-depressants swimming in her system. Others are bizarre - Hunter S. Thompson shot himself while on the phone with his wife. This is an intimate, intense companion to the unobtainable - a fond remembrance, a final goodbye.
