Caitlin Doughty does for us what Jessica Mitford did in 1963 with The American Way of Death. Doughty writes a beautiful and thought-provoking memoir, reminding us that, as Americans, we do not acknowledge or respect death as a reality of life. She discusses how we've allowed our grieving and death rituals to become cold and commercialized. An honest look into the modern death industry and how we don't - but really should - understand it.
