The Undertaking (aka Learning Gravity)

The Undertaking (aka Learning Gravity)

For Thomas Lynch the themes of his work are very simple, they are "sex and love and grief and death - the things that make us and undo us, create and destroy, how we breed and disappear and the emotional context that surrounds these events".As an undertaker with over 30 years experience the theme of death dominates Lynch's work, yet his writing lacks the morose and melancholy nature that one might assume inherent in such a topic. Instead, Lynch's writing is rich in passion, humour and an undeniable logic. For him it is only through dealing with death that we can truly get on with the business of living.
