Pardon My Hearse from the Author: Allan Abbott. Even celebrities die—and he was the man who picked up the bodies! Allan Abbott ran the leading hearse, mortuary, and funeral services company in Hollywood and got an unprecedented glimpse of how celebrities really live and die. The Forrest Gump of the funeral industry, Abbott was everywhere celebrities died, from helping to prepare Marilyn Monroe's body for burial to standing next to Christopher Walken at Natalie Wood's funeral. Now in his memoir “Pardon My Hearse,” Abbott tells the rags-to-shroud story of how we went from a young man with a hearse to the funeral driver to the stars—a rollicking, unexpectedly hilarious story of glamorous funerals, mishaps with corpses, and true-life glimpses of celebrities at their most revealing moments. ”Pardon My Hearse” is an eye-opening look at secret Hollywood from the man who literally knows where the bodies are buried.

Over Our Dead Bodies from the Author: Ken McKenzie. Not knowing what to do, I sat on the church steps and waited. As the gravity of my failure began to well up in me, I began to cry. . . I Had Lost The Hearse! Funerals and the all the things that accompany them are traditionally somber, contemplative events in which the bereaved look to their undertaker to guide them through that most difficult of times. Of course, sometimes tradition gets thrown under the bus. From a dysfunctional family who turn their mother's wake into a full-blown riot, to funeral crashers looking for free meals, to a horse-drawn hearse taking the dearly departed for the ride of their afterlife, these accounts from actual undertakers will have you laughing, thinking, and gasping in disbelief. A literal graveyard of wild coincidences, slapstick humor, and touching moments, Over Our Dead Bodies explores the lighter side of the dead, the living, and the lone undertaker who has to make it all go as planned--even if it doesn't. Praise for Mortuary Confidential "Curious, wildly honest stories that need to be told, but just not at the dinner table." --Dana Kollmann, author of Never Suck a Dead Man's Hand "As unpredictable and lively as a bunch of drunks at a New Orleans funeral." --Joe R. Lansdale "Sick, funny, and brilliant! I love this book."--Jonathan Maberry, multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author of They Bite! and Rot & Ruin "These true mortuary tales are poignant--and suddenly, gaspingly, in-your-face funny." --Booklist
