Editorial Reviews

Review

Caitlin Doughty takes you to places you didn t know you wanted to go. Fascinating, funny, and so very necessary, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes reveals exactly what's wrong with modern death denial. --Bess Lovejoy, author of Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses"

Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, fascinating and freaky, vivid and morbid, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is witty, sharply drawn, and deeply moving. Like a poisonous cocktail, Caitlin Doughty's memoir intoxicates and enchants even as it encourages you to embrace oblivion; she breathes life into death. --Dodai Stewart, deputy editor of Jezebel.com"

[Doughty s] sincere, hilarious, and perhaps life-altering memoir is a must-read for anyone who plans on dying. --Katharine Fronk"

Caitlin Doughty is best known for her YouTube series Ask a Mortician, and she brings the same charisma and drollery to her essay collection Smoke Gets in Your Eyes. Think Sloane Crosley meets Six Feet Under After confronting mortality day in and day out, Doughty becomes more philosophical about her job. Evoking Kafka, she writes that 'the meaning of life is that it ends.' Everything must come to an end; it s just a shame this book eventually does too. --Kevin Nguyen"

Entertaining and thought-provoking. --Julia Jenkins" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
