Caitlin Doughty is a mortician, advocate, and bête noire of the traditional funeral industry. Her educational webseries, Ask a Mortician, has been viewed almost 250 million times and all three of her books were New York Times bestsellers. She founded a Los Angeles funeral home as well as the funeral reform collective, The Order of the Good Death, which spawned the Death Positive movement.
Armed with a degree in medieval history and a flair for the macabre, Caitlin Doughty took a job at a crematory and turned morbid curiosity into her life’s work. She cared for bodies of every color, shape, and affliction, and became an intrepid explorer in the world of the dead. In this best-selling memoir, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, brimming with gallows humor and vivid characters, Caitlin marvels at the gruesome history of undertaking and relates her unique coming-of-age story with bold curiosity and mordant wit.
