Description


Thomas Lynch, poet, funeral director, and author of the highly praised The Undertaking, winner of an American Book Award and finalist for the National Book Award, continues to examine the relations between the "literary and mortuary arts." "Lynch engages the reader with a mixture of poetic and funerary elements....his voice is rich and generous." Richard Bernstein, New York Times " W]hat makes him such a fine essayist is that it's just the business of everyday life and death to him." Los Angeles Times Book Review "Few readers will walk away from this volume less than stunned and grateful." Jay Parini, author of Benjamin's Crossing "A luminous work of words." Nicholas Delbanco, author of What Remains.
