Jobs confidential: 15 people reveal the truth about their work

The Observer

An undertaker, who has seen women in stilettos fall into graves at funerals. A dominatrix, whose clients like to be cut and sewn again. A financial advisor, who consults stabbed Russians, but can’t handle his own money. The Observer has fifteen people tell the secrets of their work. Their selection is exquisite – from priest to dominatrix, from brain surgeon to bikini waxer – and the stories are nicely condensed to entertaining and enlightening short profiles.

From Weekly Filet #106, in March 2013.
