Subtitled: Australians Down Under
The stories and legends behind Australia's gravestones.

From the back of the book:
Dr Brasch and his wife have visited cemeteries all over Australia seeking the legends behind the permanent addresses of people who have played - sometimes with little recognition - a part in Australian history.

Here are the stories of tragedy, bravery, romance and the bizarre: a couple killed freakishly within seconds of each other by one bullet; the man who predicted his date of death and carved it into his own headstone; a famous sportsman whose headstone takes the form of a billiard table, complete with cue and balls. Even humour is not always absent from a graveyard.

Permanent Addresses is a fascinating account of Australian life through gravestones.
