In this riveting book - part travelogue, part biography, part social history - Ann Treneman of The Times takes you to some of the most interesting graves in Britain. You will meet the real War Horse, the best 'funambulist' ever, Byron and his dog Boatswain, prime ministers, queens and kings, Florence Nightingale and her pet baby owl Athena, highwaymen, scientists, mistresses, the real James Bond and, of course, his boss 'M'. Then there are writers, painters, poets, rakes and rogues, victims, the meek and mild and the just plain mad. This unique travelogue is made up of 100 entries, each telling the story of one or more graves. Some of the graves are chosen for who resides in them, others for the grave itself. Some entries are humorous, some are poignant, but all tell us something about the British way of death. At times absurd, at times astounding, in Finding the Plot Ann Treneman proves an entertaining guide to the Anglo-Saxon underworld!
