Death Dresses Poorly

by Marc Watson 

Coming December 2017

Ethan is a directionless twenty-something who has finally cast off the heartbreaking responsibilities of his broken boyhood home, but not without irreversible scars and sarcasm. After surviving a tragic accident, he begins to suspect he may actually have something to live for. Is it a hidden purpose? His new beginning? Finding a decent cup of coffee?


The answer is unclear, until one morning a familiar stranger appears. The poorly dressed man at Ethan’s door seems to have all the answers. But with those answers, comes a grave proposition.


Death Dresses Poorly is witty and realistically sarcastic; full of self-redemption and the dark, cosmic inner-workings of life and death. Comically sharp yet lighthearted, Death Dresses Poorly is the bittersweet tale of a young man’s journey through the discarded baggage of his childhood.

"Oh my god, this dialogue is fucking beautiful. I can honestly say that this is my new favorite book now...

This was the first book in a long time to properly satisfy whatever excuse for a soul I have."

"Death Dresses Poorly is Mitch Albom on steroids.

In a fascinating hybrid of compelling styles, Marc Watson gives us a fresh, unique take on what awaits a peak beyond the veil..."
