Q. Why are there almost as many jokes about death as there are about sex? A. Because they both scare the pants off us. Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein first made a name for themselves with the outrageously funny New York Timesbestseller Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar. Now they turn their attention to the Big D and share the timeless wisdom of the great philosophers, theologians, psychotherapists, and wiseguys. From angels to zombies and everything in between, Cathcart and Klein offer a fearless and irreverent history of how we approach death, why we embrace life, and whether there really is a hereafter. As hilarious as it is enlightening, Heidegger and a Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gatesis a must-read for anyone and everyone who ever expects to die.
Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein both majored in philosophy at Harvard, after which Cathcart dropped in and out of various divinity schools and Klein became a joke writer. Cathcart lives in New York City and Klein in the Berkshires.
