Mark Masek was born and raised in Joliet, Ill., about 40 miles southwest of Chicago. He was always interested in history and Hollywood and, when he moved to the Los Angeles area in 1999, he was able to combine his interests, and wrote "Hollywood Remains to Be Seen: A Guide to the Movie Stars' Final Homes," a detailed history and guidebook to 14 cemeteries in the Los Angeles area, as well as a guide to find the final burial locations of more than 300 entertainment celebrities. He is also a member of the Hollywood Underground, a group of people with the similar interests of finding and documenting the final resting places of celebrities. If they're famous, and they're dead, and they're buried somewhere in the Los Angeles area, he probably knows where to find them.

I am intimately familiar with the grounds and the attractions of Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California. I have family member interred there. I worked there for a number of years. And during my tenure working for the LA County Coroner's office, I became the person who would take out of towners there to see "the sights". This book is an excellent tool for those who would like to see the same sights but don't happen to have an expert guide along. This book is wonderfully done and every bit an expert guide all on it's own.
