About the Book

Better Dead is a book written by J. M. Barrie and it relates the tale of a writer who finds himself on trial for membership in a secret society that kills those it believes would be, as the title implies, "Better Dead." I wanted "Better Dead" to be taken off the shelves in the UK, and I would have liked not to see it there because it is in no way deserving of the exquisite clothing Messrs. He recently made the attempt in cold blood and returned shaking, but the author had read enough to have the most profound cause for declining to reveal what the book is about. This infantile effort is a field of prickles into which none may be advised to approach. Nevertheless, he has a sentimental attachment to "Better Dead" because it was my first and was released when he had little prospect of persuading any conventions to accept Scotch. There was also a week when he cherished having it in my pocket and did not consider it to be a burden. He once came close to witnessing it sell. She was a gorgeous girl, and the book was on a shelf. She smiled as she read a few pages, took a break, then returned to start the next chapter.

About Author

J. M. Barrie

Scottish author Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet, is most known for creating Peter Pan. He was also a playwright. He was raised and educated in Scotland before relocating to London, where he penned a number of well-received books and plays. There, he met the Llewelyn Davies brothers, who later served as the inspiration for his works Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a 1904 West End "fairy play," about an ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. The story of a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens was first included in Barrie's 1902 adult novel The Little White Bird. Despite his ongoing success as a writer, Peter Pan eclipsed all of his earlier works and is credited with making the name Wendy well-known. After the deaths of the Davies boys' parents, Barrie adopted them clandestinely. George V created Barrie a baronet on June 14, 1913, and in the New Year's Honours of 1922, he was inducted into the Order of Merit.
