Smoke Gets in Your Eyes...and Other Lessons From the Crematory
by Caitlin Doughty [Biography Doughty]
with humor and compassion, this memoir is about a young woman's desire
to explore the topic of death. She takes a job at a crematory and later
attends mortuary school and becomes a licensed mortician. This memoir is
a frank behind the scenes look at the death industry in this country.
It will make you think about how our society approaches death and dying. -- recommended by Tammy T. - Bennett Martin Public Library
