Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory

by: Caitlin Doughty

Publisher: Norton (2014)


Staff Pick by comrade: gianna

A really rad exploration of the funeral industry from someone who's been there. Doughty takes on the stigma that surrounds death in America and urges a more death-positive culture. Plus she's so damn funny.
