Let’s Reinvigorate Death


Julian Hanna reviews Stefany Anne Goldberg and Morgan Meis’s Dead People at 3:AM Magazine. The book eulogizes twenty-nine people Goldberg and Meis handpicked themselves with short obituaries. Hanna writes that the twenty-nine obituaries all offer, “something lively and curious.” Each is, “an all-night drunken wake, a celebration of whatever it was I managed to contribute to intellectual life during my brief stint among the living.”
