Editorial Reviews

Review

“She is the ideal guide on this journey, curious and respectful...Recommended for fans of the author and those with an interest in anthropology and ritual.”
- Library Journal

“Caitlin Doughty is razor sharp, and writes about death with exceptional clarity and style. From Here to Eternity manages to be both an extremely funny travelogue and a deeply moving book about what death means to us all.”
- Dylan Thuras, co-founder of Atlas Obscura

“A thought-provoking book about the complicated, fascinating world of funerary practices. Unless you and your friends are immortal, this book pertains to you.”
- A. J. Jacobs

“Doughty finds the humanity in others cultures' relationship with death that seems to be lacking in ours.”
- Justin Caffier, Vice

“[Doughty’s] fascinating tour of rituals contains liturgies that readers will surely observe as rare, macabre, unbelievable, ancient, and precious―sometimes simultaneously.”
- Kirkus

“In her jocular but reverential tone… Doughty doesn’t offer a simple morbid travelogue; instead, she digs into diverse death experiences with deep veneration and examines ties to socioeconomic, status, female identity, and religion.”
- Booklist
