Summary

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.
