In the Land of Long Fingernails: A Gravedigger in the Age of Aquarius Review

 

 In the Land of Long Fingernails: A Gravedigger in the Age of Aquarius Review by Charles WilkinsIn the Land of Long Fingernails: A Gravedigger in the Age of Aquarius by Charles Wilkins is laugh-out-loud funny as well as being very poignant. A delightful read with some touching vignettes on love, sex and yes, even a little rock 'n roll.

It's a memoir of what life was about in 1969 and still is. This is a great coming-of-age story. Shortlisted for the Toronto Book Awards in 2009, you can see what I mean by reading a short excerpt on their site.  You can also read Ten Questions with Charles Wilkins at Open Book Toronto.

What are your hilarious and macabre reading picks?
