Description

Set in a small Spanish village, this charming, magical, first novel by Peter Grandbois tells the story of the town's gravedigger, a man who has the ability to bridge the worlds of the living and the dead. Having inherited the job from his father, Juan Rodrigo listens to the spirits of the recently deceased as they tell their life stories - stories that often reveal far more than is known by those still alive. It's Don Rodrigo's duty to relay these accounts from one world to the next, and though the details that aren't always well received, he is a respected member of the community encouraging people to accept and to forgive. He is also raising his own daughter, on the brink of adulthood, who falls in love with a boy her father doesn't approve of. Combining magic realism, ribald frolics, and flights of fancy, "The Gravedigger" is a heart-warming tale of lives, deaths, and love.
