Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: And Other Lessons From the Crematory
Most people want to avoid thinking about death, but Caitlin Doughty-a twenty-something with a degree in medieval history and a flair for the macabre-took a job at a crematory, turning morbid curiosity into her life's work. With an original voice that combines fearless curiosity and mordant wit, Caitlin tells an unusual coming-of-age story full of bizarre encounters, gallows humor, and vivid characters (both living and very dead). In the spirit of her popular Web series, "Ask a Mortician," Caitlin's engaging narrative style makes this otherwise scary topic both approachable and profound.
