Making an exit

In this book Making An Exit, published by Coptic Publishing, London, author Sarah Murray explores how different cultures dignify the dead. Her travels in this book include a Balinese royal cremation, Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations, a Czech chandelier made from human bones, a weeping ceremony in Iran, and a Philippine village where the casketed dead are left hanging in caves. She even goes to Africa to commission her own Ghanaian coffin.
