The Living and the Dead is a companion book to Handbook for the Recently Deceased. The subtitle desciribes it as "Harmonious lifestyles and peaceful co-existence."


The actual contents of the book still remain a mystery. Charles Deetz was reading a copy after the Deetzes had come to an agreeable living arrangement with spirits of the Maitlands.
