Product Description

Product Description

Nelson Mandela, Stephane Hessel, Margaret Thatcher, Seamus Heaney, Lou Reed … 2013 saw the passing of some of modern history’s most influential figures. From poetry to politics, via music, sport, comedy, film and philosophy, this collection of obituaries remembers and celebrates the lives of those who held us enthralled. Characterised by wonderfully original writing, this ebook contains the very best obituaries to have appeared in the Guardian in 2013.

Obituaries found their modern form in the printed paper in the mid-1990s, were on the website by the end of the decade, and these days also come via mobiles, tablets and Twitter (@guardianobits). Each provides a compelling first impression of the story of a life: the background to the achievements, the setbacks overcome and the chance events and encounters along the way. There are new insights to be gained about even most familiar figures.

Just a pity that Amazon avoids paying what most of its customers would regard as a fair share of tax.
