Description
With erudition and a wickedly dry wit, F. González-Crussi leads the reader into an unexpectedly animated world of cadavers, coroners, graveyards, and death rituals. In six essays, this self-described "corpse handler" explores the culture of death from the perspective of one who confronts mortality as routine. A professor emeritus of pathology at Northwestern University and the former head of pathology at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, González-Crussi is renowned for his medical essays, blending science, the history of medicine, and philosophy to conduct entertaining and unexpected literary journeys.

"Elegant.... While González-Crussi brings some levity to his subject here, the overall tone is serious—appropriately so—and should stir readers into their own memento mori."—Kirkus Reviews
