Beschreibung:

Caitlin Doughty is a best-selling author of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (ISBN 978 0 393 35190 3), a licensed undertaker, and the host and creator of the "Ask a Mortician and "Morbid Minute web series. She founded the death acceptance collective The Order of the Good Death and co-founded Death Salon.
We'd like the think that we treat our dead with the utmost dignity and that our contemporary Western funeral traditions provide all the comfort and closure the dead's loved ones deserve. In her new book, best-selling author and licensed undertaker Caitlin Doughty urges us to think again. A clever follow-up to Doughty's debut (which explored death and dying in America through her experiences as a young crematorium assistant), From Here to Eternity takes her search for "the good death to the far corners of the globe. Doughty investigates the ways in which other cultures may be fostering more dignified, meaningful funeral customs than our own: in rural Indonesia, where mummified relatives live in the family home for years before burial; Bolivia, where the skulls of the dead are crime-solvers and relationship counsellors; to Japan, where bodies can spend their last days in their very own "corpse hotel.
With a beguiling mix of gallows humour and wit, Caitlin Doughty challenges notions of what really constitutes a good approach to death, mounting a compelling case to reconsider our cultural relationship to our dead.
