Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Doughty’s] sincere, hilarious, and perhaps life-altering memoir is a must-read for anyone who plans on dying.” (Katharine Fronk - Booklist, Starred review)

“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.” (Kevin Nguyen - Grantland)

“Entertaining and thought-provoking.” (Julia Jenkins - Shelf Awareness)

“Demonically funny dispatches.” (O Magazine)

“Morbid and illuminating.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“A book as graphic and morbid as this one could easily suck its readers into a bout of sorrow, but Doughty―a trustworthy tour guide through the repulsive and wondrous world of death―keeps us laughing.” (Rachel Lubitz - Washington Post)

“Doughty reels you in with wonderful anecdotes about her work. Intermixed with the humor is a love of life that will make you reconsider how our culture treats the dead.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

About the Author

Caitlin Doughty is a licensed mortician and the host and creator of the "Ask a Mortician" web series. She founded the death acceptance collective The Order of the Good Death and cofounded Death Salon. She lives in Los Angeles.
