By A Customer on 7 Mar. 2004
Format: Paperback
An excellent book exploring the wonders of death globally, his writting style really kept me intrigued and engaged until the very end. It was just as good as 'Notes from a Mud Hut' if not better, and is just as witty and humourful, with ancedotes about the grieving process cross-culturally it really makes you reflect upon your own practises e.g. Irish wakes and English funerals, and the extent to which the treatment of death is culturally constructed- e.g. the wailing practises in Zambia. Throughly recommended for a funny read with brains.
