The other day I finished Spooky Little Girl by Laurie Notaro. I hadn't ready any of her books in a long time, and I had forgotten how funny she is!
Lucy Fisher comes home from vacation and finds everything she owns on the lawn of her (apparently ex-)fiance's house. She gets fired from her job. Then she gets hit by a bus and dies. And that's just in the first few pages! Needless to say, funny stuff follows; it's also a good story, and a very different take on what happens when we die.
