Carolin Did anybody else wonder if there is a real book about gravediggers, like "the gravedigger's handbook"..?

Or was it just me, the morbid person..?


Derek There must be a book like that, I would guess, but I wonder how popular it is among non-gravediggers.


Mehar There might be a book which goes by that name.......but i guess it's nearly impossible to find it even if it truly exists!


Linda Kelly In The Land Of Long Fingernails; A Gravedigger's Memoir by Charles Wilkins is a real book. He was a student at the Uni. Of Toronto and he took a job as a gravedigger. Not read it so if anyone woukd like to try and give some feedback......

I haven't raed it so no feedback but this is an interesting finding


Mehar read*


Christian Keifer gravediggers can read books, so why wouldnt there be a book about how to do their job?


message 8: by Anna (new) - added it

Anna Well, if there isn't, someone ought to write it.

Perhaps even as a companion to "The Book Thief". . .
