I read a book a few years ago and I loaned it out and never got it back but I would love to re-read it.  The problem is that I can't remember the title or who wrote it so if anyone can help me out?.... The story is supposedly true, about a man who fell off a ladder and died.  I believe, if I remember correctly, he "woke up" in the morgue after being pronounced dead.  Can't remember that part for sure.  However, while dead, he went to heaven and told of the things he saw there and the things he felt.  It included a very vivid description of some translucent flowers in a field.  After this, he spent some time in hell where it was very very dark and demons were attacking him with accusations of sin and profanities.  I bought this book twice and twice I loaned it out and never got it back so I would love to have it again if I can find it.  Maybe his first name was carl?  I can't remember.

I think I found it, Jeri.  It's called Didn't You Read My Book by Richard Eby.  But that one sounds good too and I'd be interested in finding out if their experiences were similar.
