I cannot think of a better description of this book than the one on the front cover itself; A tragi-comedy of Anglo-American manners, concerning the burial practices of California. This collectible Penguin edition was published in 1958. Touchingly, Waugh dedicates it to his good friend Nancy Mitford with whom he was in a long standing letter writing relationship.

All vintage books are sold as is. Vintage books are not pristine new, they have their own smell and excitement on opening. They often contain messages inscribed on the flyleaf, lists, or bookmarks from previous owners (I leave these in for you to find, as I have done, and wonder about the person who left it there). Feel free to request additional information and/or photos. The postage quoted is fro first class in the UK or airmail to overseas. If you require tracking or insurance please mail me before ordering, I will then adjust the postage amount to include the additional cost.

Thank you for stopping by BeauBazaar, hope to see you again.
