From the author of the magical classic, 'The Last Uncorn', a truly great modern fantasy that makes the impossible seem totally real. A very large, old cemetery, half the size of Central Park, thick with trees and laid out carefully with winding streets. Stretches of simple headstone give way to crosses, the crosses to angels and then weeping angels, and these finally to mausoleums... Typical of any old, large cemetery, you might think, but you would be wrong. For in an isolated mausoleum lives Mr Rebeck, kept alive by a raven who brings him food snatch from city shops, a raven who talks. And into this secluded place comes Michael and Laura, a young couple who romance soon blossoms amid the gravestones and the shrouding trees. They have only one problem: both of them are ghosts... 'A Fine and Prive Place', Peter Beagle's fist novel and some judged his best, is an astounding feat of imaginative writing. All those who know and love his classic fantasy novel ' The Last Unicorn' will revel in this wholly believable take of recluse who acts as philosopher and guide to the newly and very bewildered dead. Joyous and heartbreaking by turns, haunting and touched with gentle humour, it draws the reader into a world where the impossible happens. And after it, no cemetery will ever seem quite the same again.--This text refers to the Pdf edition.
