The Guy is Dead 3,000 Years and We're Still Talking about Him

Last year novelist James Patterson released a book called The Murder of King Tut: The Plot to Kill the Child King: A Nonfiction Thriller [932.014 PAT]. Now comes news that Tut may have died of disease. The poor king lived a short 19 years, but he seems to have lived a miserable life with malaria, broken bones, a cleft palate, and a club foot. NPR's All Things Considered ran the story if you'd like to listen, instead.

Other books in our collection cover the particulars of Tut's tomb, his life, and his death. You'll find titles such as The Tomb of Tutankhamen by Michael Woods, in our children's section [J 932.014 WOO] and Tutankhamen: The Life and Death of the Boy-King by Christine el Mahdy [B TUT], and another book on Tut's speculated murder called The Murder of Tutankhamen: A True Story by Bob Brier [932 BRI].
