Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The perennially best-selling guide to the lives, deaths, and final resting places of our most enduring cultural icons, now revised and completely updated to include 25 entries of the newly dead.

Where Are They Buried? has directed legions of fervent fans and multitudes of the morbidly curious to the gravesides, monuments, memorials, and tombstones of the nearly 500 celebrities and antiheros included in the book. By far the most complete and well-organized guide on the subject, every entry features an entertaining capsule biography full of little-known facts; a detailed description of the death; and step-by-step directions to the site of the grave, including not only the name of the cemetery but the specific roads and trails to take within the cemetery to reach the gravesite. The book also provides a handy index of grave locations organized by state, province, and country to make planning a grave-hopping road trip easy and efficient.

New entries include Steve Jobs, Whitney Houston, Neil Armstrong, Elizabeth Taylor, Dick Clark and twenty more.

Synopsis:

This enlightening and browsable guide features more than 500 profiles of the lives, deaths, and final resting places of some of the most influential figures from sports, music, film, television, literature, and politics. 50 photos.

Synopsis:

Updated with dozens of entries of the newly dead and now in paperback, an irresistible and browsable guide to the lives, deaths, and final resting places of the world's most influential figures.
