COFFIN
By Jean-Vernon Bosly
Jean-Vernon is in his eighties and goes shopping for a coffin. He finds an alternative funeral parlour in Bath and looks at several kinds of recycleable coffins, including one you can use as a bookcase before you die. His favourite is one in wicker. He thinks that the body should be given back to nature.
