Allan Abbott ran the leading hearse, mortuary, and funeral services company in Hollywood and saw up close how celebrities really live and die. The Forrest Gump of the funeral industry, Abbott was everywhere celebrities died, from helping to prepare Marilyn Monroe's body for burial to standing next to Christopher Walken at Natalie Wood's funeral. This book tells the rags-to-shroud story of how a young man with a hearse became the funeral driver to the stars - a rollicking, unexpectedly hilarious account of glamorous funerals, mishaps with corpses, and true-life glimpses of celebrities at their most revealing moments. A treasure trove of insight and gossip that you won't find anywhere else, Pardon My Hearse is an eye-opening look at secret Hollywood from the man who literally knows where the bodies are buried.

Hard to listen too
Too many personal dating stories and buying cars. I wanted to learn about the funeral business specifics but this was merely a guy talking mostly about his personal life.
No he was awful
Mad I spent a credit on this.
Skipped through many chapters of this book to try and hear what I was looking for with no success.
