Description

Last words can come in all shapes and sizes. From comic quips to profound deathbed wit, shocking and surprising final revelations, delicious puns and too-good turns of phrase, gravestone gags and premature celebrations... or even just awkward and unfortunate quotes the speaker ended up eating.
Indeed, this tiny tome is stacked to the rafters with notable people, past, present, who are still very much alive and quipping - though not for long. From the long-time dead to the recently deceased (or simply dying of embarassment; see Liz Truss), Nostradamus to Leonardo da Vinci, Henry VIII to Princess Diana, these famous last words span centuries and continents and will no doubt echo through eternity.
If you're look to have the last laugh, The Little Book of Famous Last Words will have you laughing out loud till the very last page. For those about to die, we salute you!
'I'm a fighter, not a quitter,'* Liz Truss, UK Prime Minister, October 19, 2022.
*Poor ol' Liz quit the next day. Her calamitous career as PM lasted for just 44 days.
