The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade

by Thomas Lynch Author

Meditations on death by poet and small town funeral director Thomas Lynch. This unique collection of essays gently, honestly, and at times irreverently guides us through the considerations of the living: mourning, remembering, the business and economics of funerals, caring for corpses, faith, history, and considering our own limited hours on earth. A life-affirming book truly like no other, combining homey small town stories with deeper meditations that are so candid you'll take a long time to digest each one.
