Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: & Other Lessons from the Crematory, Available September 15th

From Order of a Good Death

My friends (and all those with a completely healthy interest in our inevitable deaths)!

She hath arrived.  Apple of my eye, my first child, the only thing that matters to me in this cruel cruel world: my book!

(I know you think I should cool it with the exclamation marks.)

Listen, I hear your concern, but that’s an unrealistic expectation, because damn if I’m not unreasonably excited!!!

I’ve worked on this beast of burden for six years.

“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. Thrown into a profession of gallows humor and vivid characters (both living and very dead), Caitlin learned to navigate the secretive culture of those who care for the deceased.

Her eye-opening, candid, and often hilarious story is like going on a journey with your bravest friend to the cemetery at midnight. She demystifies death, leading us behind the black curtain of her unique profession. And she answers questions you didn’t know you had: Can you catch a disease from a corpse? How many dead bodies can you fit in a Dodge van? What exactly does a flaming skull look like?”

Here are the various and sundry places to order the love of my life and have it delivered to your door (or Kindle).

IBOOKSTORE!

INDIEBOUND!

POWELL’S!

Oh! Oh! I am also going on tour!  Jesus, Caitlin- STOP with the exclamation marks- you’re embarrassing yourself.  Wait, do you expect me not to be excited about spreading the pro-death acceptance gospel across our great nation? (and Canada, another great nation?) Now you’re just arguing with yourself, it’s starting to make everyone reading this uncomfortable.
