Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty

If you love Mary Roach, you are going to adore Caitlin Doughty. She is a funeral director known for her fascinating, hilarious YouTube series Ask a Mortician.

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is a memoir about her first crematory job in Oakland, and how she wound up “America’s (Kinda Dark) Sweetheart.” I love every page of this book, and I can’t wait to recommend it to everyone I know.
