Reviews

Demonically funny dispatches.
Demonically funny.
Frank...philosophical...engaging, and even wicked.--Natalie Kusz
Upbeat, brave and brilliantly, morbidly curious...Her measure of society is fierce, right on, and radical...[A]n important and timely book.--Helen Davies
It may well blow your mind wide open.--Elisabeth Donnelly
In a moving--and often funny--memoir about working in a crematorium and other parts of the 'death industry, ' Caitlin Doughty argues for radical change in how we face the details of death.--Jessica Ferri
Doughty...a trustworthy tour guide...keeps us laughing most of the way.--Rachel Lubitz
This book absolutely must be read, if only to remind all of us that exercise, organic food, and plastic surgery only work up to a point. Doughty is my kind of death crusader--compassionate, unblinking, and very, very funny.--Meg Rosoff
