Art Buchwald Lives

I cheered when I read "In Matter of Life and Death, the Joke is on Buchwald" by Stevenson Swanson in the Sunday, August 27 Chicago Tribune (section 1, page 4) because there is to be more written by Art Buchwald to read. He checked into a hospice to die in February, but he came out living. Of course, he wrote a book called Too Soon to Say Goodbye (ISBN 1400066271), which will be published in November and will include several of the eulogies that were prepared for his now-delayed funeral.

In the meantime, you can read some of his columns from the Washington Post - try Casey on the Hill. You can also find many of his books at public libraries. I especially enjoyed his novel Stella in Heaven, which he wrote after his wife's death.
