"OK, so this has been on my to-read list for the longest time after I saw some press Caitlin got upon its release. This seems like the definition of mine and Mallory's shit." —Elizabeth
Promising review: "I have worked in pre-hospital for most of my adult life and have had many patients that I've witnessed die. While I know about the process of death, as an American I didn't know what happened after death (hold on, I'm not talking about paranormal stuff here, I'm talking about funeral-type of stuff). The way that I saw it was that I attempted to treat the patient, they didn't make it and died, and it's all over for me when I sign the paperwork. In reality there is a great deal more that follows. As an American, we are taught NOT to talk about this process; however, it's a part of life and if you look at death as a part of life, 1) you will be less afraid of death and 2) it can actually bring you closer to other cultures and see that your not that different after all. Ok, with the exception of removing a loved one from the grave, dressing them up, and inviting everyone over for a meal with the deceased to honor the deceased. Please don't misunderstand my comment — I'm not saying that it's wrong, what I'm saying is that it's different. Ms. Doughty had the privilege and honor to experience it and I learned a lot. She's a great author (this is where someone would say, 'she made me laugh, she made me cry...' but it's true. I hope that she writes a third book soon. Read it, you will love it." —Kevin Dorst

Welp, that reviewer will be GLAD TO KNOW that Caitlin did write a third book, Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs?: Big Questions from Tiny Mortals About Death.
