A celluloid culinary cemetery celebrity comedy.

Today's celebrities won't give you the time of day. Yesterday's stars are much more accommodating.

Your intrepid reporter visited 50 prostrate personalities over lunch. Let me be your guide to our reservations at the most exclusive hideaway: P re Lachaise cemetery.

Call me The Chairfather. This writer specializes in one-way interviews, and capturing the intimate moments of subjects unaware of my camera eye. In this book, I take you supping with the sleeping stars. Lunching with the late litterati. Gnoshing with the gone glitterati. Honestly, they have no choice in the matter.

See candid photos and read spicy transcripts from our exchanges. Some of these luminaries haven't spoken for hundreds of years. You'll never believe what they say, and what I have to say about them.

These pages reveal fascinating facts, scandalous stories and gossip. Posterity has never been so present. The passed have never been more alive

Mysteries are uncovered, like which piece from composer Chopin is missing? How did they sneak in Edith Piaf clandestinely? What did Ab lard lose by loving H lo se? Which vegetable did I eat with Parmentier? OK, you could probably guess that last one.

Book your own lunch date with the fallen famous NOW. Or later. Really, it doesn't matter. Their agendas are quite open.
