Once upon a time there lived a man who was born the son of a mortician. In this small matter of the choice of a suitable father no choice was given to him. This at least is true of every man.

In this small matter of the choice of a suitable father no choice was given to him. This at least is true of every man. No man chooses his father.Anthony Loxton, reluctant third-generation funeral director by day, is by night Tony the Fox, a guitarist in the bars of Kalk Bay. It looks like theres no escape from the burden of the past. But when Tonys one-night stand, Lily, arrives in a body bag at the Loxton Funeral Parlour, he surprises himself by breaking his own rules. In this charming, complex and often moving story, we follow Anthony Loxton as he poignantly struggles to come to terms with himself, the living and the dead, and, indeed, death itself. The Good Cemetery Guide received an honourable mention from the English Academy. Judges described the book as an intensely readable creation of story and character.
