Description

Enter a grave new world of fascination and delight as award-winning journalist Peter Ross uncovers the stories and glories of graveyards. Who are London’s outcast dead and why is David Bowie their guardian angel? How did a thousand skulls come to be stacked beneath a church in Kent? Why is the music hall star who sang ‘I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside’ buried on a hillside in Glasgow far from the sound of the silvery sea? All of these sorrowful mysteries – and many more – are answered in ‘A Tomb with a View’, a book for anyone who has ever wandered through a field of crooked headstones and wondered about the lives and deaths of those who lie beneath.
