It is commonly thought that after death and burial the remains of an individual are left to “rest in peace” — but history reveals that in many instances this has most definitely not been the case. Demonstrating this, After the Funeral follows the postmortem exploits of the bodies--or parts of bodies — of thirty-five famous and infamous people. Graced with thirty-two illustrations, a bibliography, and an index, After the Funeral picks up where conventional biographies leave off — and probes the bizarre, ghastly, surprising, and at times ridiculous circumstances that befall many of the well known after they were laid to rest.

    And you see, Madame, she could not have seen them there. Because they had been broken and put away before she arrived with the Timothy Abernethies. So she could only have seen them when she was there as Cora Lansquenet.”

    “The visit of an art critic, a smell of oil paint, a picture postcard of Polflexan harbour, and finally a bouquet of wax flowers standing on that malachite table where a Chinese vase stands now.
