Design for dying User Review - Not Available - Book Verdict Leary, who last year succumbed to "a healthy, robust, spectacularly ambitious cancerous tumor," has left a work more irreverent, outrageous but possibly more valuable than his role as LSD icon. Design for Dying — Leary's last book — shows us how we too can make dying the high point of life. Irreverent, thought-provoking and hilarious, Leary's parting shot pioneers new ways to die and new ways for the living to think about death. Urging us to take control of our deaths (and even to determine when and how we will die). The first in a series of riveting behind-the-scenes mysteries, Renee Patrick's Design for Dying is a delightful romp through Hollywood's Golden Age. Los Angeles, Lillian Frost has traded dreams of stardom for security as a department store salesgirl until she discovers she's a suspect in the murder of her former roommate, Ruby Carroll.4/5(2). Design for Dying, which in part chronicles Leary's "planned death," was published posthumously in Summary Introductions. Design for Dying contains two introductions: one by Leary and one by R. U. Sirius. Leary introduces readers to the event that incited the book: his diagnosis of prostate cancer.
