Product description

Review

From Here To Eternity is fascinating, thought-provoking and--who would have guessed?--sometimes funny. Put it on your bucket list.

The macabre travelogue is a thoughtful reflection and a smart critique of the American funeral industry, with plenty of gallows humor thrown in.--The Ten Best Travel Books of 2017

This humane book gently provokes you to wonder: what exactly is your ideal funeral?

Doughty finds the humanity in others cultures' relationship with death that seems to be lacking in ours.

Doughty is a relentlessly curious and chipper tour guide to the underworld, and the weirder things get, the happier she seems.... Her dispatches from the dark side [are] doing us all a kindness--offering a picture of what we're in for, even if we'd rather not know.

Doughty writes bluntly about open-air cremations, natural burials and body composting, bringing a little more clarity and a little less mystery to the question: 'What happens to us after we die?'--Our Guide to 2017's Great Reads

Thought-provoking.... Unless you and your friends are immortal, this book pertains to you.--A. J. Jacobs

Review

Compelling . . . Doughty's writing will give you the giggles as well as send a chill down your spine - GUARDIAN

Think Bill Bryson doing an underworld special - THE TIMES

Doughty is fun, with an eye for the bizarre and the absurd. She hits the road in quest of cultures untroubled by the western taboos surrounding mortality - SPECTATOR

Fascinating, thought-provoking and funny. Put it on your bucket list - MAIL ON SUNDAY
