Genre: Biography & Autobiography

A fascinating look at how writers through the ages have approached death—in both the literary and literal senses. “Everybody has got to die, but I have always believed an exception would be made in my case.” –William Saroyan, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Dying has always been a topic for great novelists, poets, and playwrights to wrestle with—but how did they themselves shuffle off this mortal coil? As this compendium of true stories reveals, they did not always bow out gracefully—but often, they did depart in memorable ways. Aeschylus was conked on the head by a turtle falling from the sky. Molière collapsed while playing the role of a hypochondriac in one of his plays. Edgar Allan Poe was found semi-comatose in someone else’s clothes before taking his last breath. Sherwood Anderson was felled by a toothpick in a martini. Sir Francis Bacon was poisoned by a raw chicken. And rumor has it that Dylan Thomas expired after eighteen straight whiskeys in a row. Even after death, some unfortunates still met with indignity: Thomas Hardy’s expunged heart, meant to be interred next to his beloved wife, was eaten by his cat. Whether they be sad, ironic, ignoble, ghastly, or shocking (literally, in the case of Thomas Merton), here are the stories of more than one hundred writers’ encounters with death, spanning nearly 2,500 years—and what each had to say on the subject, revealing varying degrees of fear, uncertainty, denial, acceptance, and humor. In Final Chapters, “Jim Bernhard gives a respectful nod to the understandable fascination most of us have with death…an often morbid but sometimes merry reminder that all flesh is grass, no matter how talented or rich or famous the bones it cloaks” (Star Tribune)

IN THEIR OWN WORDS THE FINAL CHAPTER

Author: JAMES A. OLESON
Publisher: iUniverse

Release Date: 2011-03-16
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Nearly 100 illustrious fi ghter aces and test pilots have granted personal glimpses from their military careers to help create this tribute to America’s patriotic and heroic fliers. “IN THEIR OWN WORDS - THE FINAL CHAPTER - TRUE STORIES FROM AMERICAN FIGHTER ACES” illuminates what it took to fl y and survive in hostile enemy skies and to test our new and unforgiving fighter aircraft. When I f irst began compiling information, interviewing and corresponding with our legendary fighter pilots, there were about 600 of the original 1,473 fighter aces still with us. It is now 2011 and only 10% of our American fi ghter aces are still living. I, and other military aviation enthusiasts are indeed fortunate that this book will again honor and tell the “fi rst person” accounts of nearly 50% of these remarkable remaining fi ghter pilots. Th e goal of this book is to write the “fi nal chapter” to this stunning legacy. A great deal of our nation’s rich military heritage is about to become extinct. In a very few years all our ace fi ghter pilots will be gone. Th e fact that our country is still free and speaking English instead of Japanese or German bears witness to their extraordinary deeds and courage.
