Midwives, Layers-Out, and Lady Pole

Ecstatic to be on Death and the Maiden! Check out my guest post:

Death & the Maiden

I recently finished Smoke Gets In Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory,Caitlin Doughty’s macabre, delightful memoir on her experience (past and current) in the death industry. Her story is a morbid treat which I highly recommend reading, as its more somber, gruesome moments are nicely juxtaposed with mortician-isms, such as the enlightening powers of wearing “corpse-colored glasses” and the nifty piece of wisdom, “if at first you don’t succeed, slice, slice, again,” (the latter to be used only in regards to corpses, please).
