Description
 
‘Cemeteries’, writes Taylor, ‘are where I go to commune with “my” ghosts. In this book, Taylor’s ghosts become our own. His thoughtful, poignant essay interweaves personal narrative, historical analysis, cultural commentary & philosophical reflection, prompting searching questions in an age obsessed with youth & immortality. The haunting photographs show us the graves of the artists, architects, writers, philosophers & musicians who shaped 20th-century culture in Europe & America. This book raises difficult questions about the modern greats & where & how they would be buried, & who wrote their epitaphs. It considers what their deaths, & their graves, tell us about their lives & suggest about our own.
