What People Are Saying

The bottom line of The Dead Guy Interviews is that it is the most entertaining historical text I have ever read
—Review, Inglorious Fiction
A great tool for history teachers who wish to tell the history of these famous figures without putting their classes to sleep.
Front Street Reviews
Michael Stusser's ingenious ability to bring historical figures to life falls somewhere between brilliant writing and method acting. Or perhaps even necrophilia. Who knows. Point is, The Dead Guy Interviews is both wildly educational (yes, its possible) and wickedly entertaining.
—Neely Harris, Editor-in-Chief mental_floss magazine
Michael Stusser's The Dead Guy Interviews is a funny, educational way to get to know almost fifty of history's late greats. Finally, a way to talk to the dead without all that tedious messing around with seances or grave robbery!
—Ken Jennings, Jeopardy genius and author of Brainiac: Adventures in the Curious, Competitive, Compulsive World of Trivia Buffs
The Dead Guy Interviews are as smart as they are funny--wry, incisive and outrageous, this book is proof of what some of us have known for a long time: Michael Stusser has a real way with the dead.
—Jess Walter, author of The Zero, 2006 National Book Award finalist
