    We can all remember sitting exams: the long nights reading and re-reading through our textbooks, the frantic last-minute 'cramming', the tremendous sense of foreboding kindly provided by the ticking - the relentless ticking! - clock as it counts down the little time you have left...

    From Groucho Marx's 'Die, my dear? Why that's the last thing I'll do' to Spike Milligan's gravestone epitaph of 'I told you I was ill', this book examines some of the most fitting famous last words of all time...

    Compiled by Maria Pritchard, I Told You I Was Ill: Famous Last Words and Astonishing Epitaphs is a poignant and funny book that shows how many use humour as a way to say goodbye...
