A good, albeit morbid memoir of Doughy's early life in the mortuary business. Its a good mix of her experiences intercut with the history of the business. If you've every seen the Ask a Mortician channel on Youtube, you've seen the author. A good read if you're curious about the subject

The author does a great job reconstructing the world around her job as a cremation operator (something like that). And through this lens examines the commercial filters on the mainstream death industry.

Philosophical in a simple way.
