Caitlin Doughty sets out in search of cultures unburdened by fears of dead bodies. With curiosity and morbid humour, Doughty introduces us to inspiring death-care innovators, participates in powerful death practices almost entirely unknown in the West and explores new spaces for mourning; including a futuruistic glowing Buddha columbarium in Japan, a candlelit Mexican cemetery, and America's only open-air pyre. In doing so she expands the readers' sense of what it means to treat the dead with dignity and reveals unexpected possibilities for our own death rituals.
