Summary

They say there are only two things in life you can be sure of: death and taxes. Well, you can add a final meal to that, because no matter who you are—a prisoner on death row or one of the greatest political minds the world has ever known—you will have eaten a meal of some description before shuffling off this mortal coil. Have you ever wondered what people ate before they passed, or the dinners served before some of the most momentous event in history occurred? Last Suppers contains the answers to important questions—such as what did the passengers on the Titanic dine on just hours before the ill-fated vessel sank and did Elvis really die on the toilet while enjoying a giant sandwich—and gives plenty more interesting nuggets of trivia based around the meals people enjoyed before meeting their maker. It is an irreverent, absorbing, and entertaining collection of trivia that makes the perfect gift and provides you with the materials needed to arm yourself with plenty of pointless facts ready for conversations at work or down at the local bar.
