Praise

“The best moments lie in Dannatt’s musings on death itself, as, in death, “everything comes together as one giant, cosmic anecdote.” Dannatt’s collection is easy to dip into and difficult to put down.”
Publishers Weekly

“If I were in charge of high school curricula, I’d make Doomed and Famous required reading, to empower eccentric young souls.”
—Kathelin Grey, Los Angeles Review of Books

Doomed and Famous is a rare pleasure. A collection of obituaries mainly (but not always) of men, whose unusual lives Dannatt documents with a zealous commitment to the brief, the suicidal, the addicted, the long-lived, the extraordinarily rich, the flamboyant, the insouciantly poor, the innately glamorous and the artistic.”
—Perspective

“an enjoyable celebration of eccentricity, frequently tinged with melancholy”
—Henry Hitchings, Times Literary Supplement
