Reviews

"Demonically funny." -- O, The Oprah Magazine
"Frank...philosophical...engaging, and even wicked." -- Natalie Kusz - New York Times Book Review
"Upbeat, brave and brilliantly, morbidly curious...Her measure of society is fierce, right on, and radical...[A]n important and timely book." -- Helen Davies - Sunday Times
"It may well blow your mind wide open." -- Elisabeth Donnelly - Flavorwire
"Think Sloane Crosley meets Six Feet Under." -- Kevin Nguyen - Grantland
"In a moving-and often funny-memoir about working in a crematorium and other parts of the `death industry,' Caitlin Doughty argues for radical change in how we face the details of death." -- Jessica Ferri - Daily Beast
"Demonically funny dispatches." -- O Magazine
"Doughty...a trustworthy tour guide...keeps us laughing most of the way." -- Rachel Lubitz - Washington Post
"Alternately heartbreaking and hilarious, fascinating and freaky, vivid and morbid, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is witty, sharply drawn, and deeply moving. Like a poisonous cocktail, Caitlin Doughty's memoir intoxicates and enchants even as it encourages you to embrace oblivion; she breathes life into death." -- Dodai Stewart, deputy editor of Jezebel.com
"Caitlin Doughty takes you to places you didn't know you wanted to go. Fascinating, funny, and so very necessary, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes reveals exactly what's wrong with modern death denial." -- Bess Lovejoy, author of Rest in Pieces: The Curious Fates of Famous Corpses
"This book absolutely must be read, if only to remind all of us that exercise, organic food, and plastic surgery only work up to a point. Doughty is my kind of death crusader-compassionate, unblinking, and very, very funny." -- Meg Rosoff
