I struggled a bit with the first few pages of this book, but quickly got drawn into it's style and humour. As well as being an fascinating story of funeral folk it also questions the nature of death and the rituals that surround it. Alan Spence seems to be getting a great deal off his chest in this novel but only occasionally does that become obvious or intrusive. Very funny and ultimately very moving too.
