    From her first day at Westwind Cremation & Burial, 23-year-old Caitlin Doughty threw herself into her curious new profession. Coming face-to-face with the very thing we go to great lengths to avoid thinking about, she started to wonder about the lives of those she cremated and the mourning families they left behind, and found herself confounded by people's erratic reactions to death. Exploring our death rituals - and those of other cultures - she pleads the case for healthier attitudes around death and dying.

    As a practising mortician, Caitlin Doughty has long been fascinated by our pervasive terror of dead bodies. In From Here to Eternity, she sets out in search of cultures unburdened by such fears. In rural Indonesia, she observes a man clean and dress his grandfather's mummified body. She meets Bolivian ñatitas (cigarette-smoking, wish-granting human skulls) and introduces us to the Japanese ritual of kotsuage, in which relatives use chopsticks to pluck their loved ones' bones from cremation ashes.

    Caitlin Doughty ist Amerikas berühmteste Bestatterin. In ihrem Bestseller befreit sie den Tod von etlichen Tabus - und den Hörer von der Scheu, sich mit ihm zu beschäftigen. Den Vorhang zwischen hier und dort zu lüften kann nämlich ungemein befreiend wirken, vorausgesetzt, man hört einer mutigen Erzählerin zu, die die letzten Dinge so ausspricht, wie sie eben sind. Schon mit Anfang 20 weiß Caitlin, dass Tote ihre Berufung sind und sie beginnt nach ihrem Studium bei einem Krematorium zu arbeiten.
