Grim Reaper Suffers From Teen Angst

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Everyone goes through those rough teen years – including Death.

The elusive, cloaked figure that takes humans to the afterlife has penned a memoir titled Death: A Life (Three Rivers Press), in which he recalls his troubled, misunderstood life.

Through the book, co-author George Pendle says Death wanted to “rectify a few misconceptions” and let people know he’s a normal guy.

For instance, the dark, hooded Grim Reaper look usually attributed to Death was actually “just a phase” from his angsty teenage years.

Pendle explains, “Death just wanted to wear black and stay in his room and listen to The Cure. It’s hard when your dad is Satan and your mother is Sin.

The book reveals Death’s serious Daddy issues, gained from living in the shadow of the Prince of Darkness, who’s not only his father, but also his brother and his rival in a love triangle with his mother.

Pendle says, “His parents would tell him to be bad, but Death wanted to be good. He had a dysfunctional childhood, but he overcame it.”

Death hits shelves tomorrow (Sep. 30).
