History Talks – The End of the Road by Jack Cooke

March 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm

Jack Cooke

Jack Cooke talks about his latest book The End of the Road – a journey around Britain in search of the dead. Jack sets off in a dilapidated hearse to unearth some of the quirkiest graves, tombs and burial sites that Britain has to offer, some famous some not so famous. Occasionally he feels impelled to spend the night amongst some of his subjects (Highgate cemetery for one). Funny, tender, informative and wonderfully uplifting.

Jack is the Editor of the Museum’s bulletin The Orford Historian and his first book, The Tree Climber’s Guide (in London), was a resounding success. Sometime bookseller, Japanophile, adventurer, Jack focuses on travelogues and short stories. He lives in Suffolk.
