SummaryAdd a Summary
American Afterlife by Kate Sweeney presents several perspectives within the occupations and first-hand accounts of death and dying in American culture. Her writing presents as a memoir, a travel journal that details interactions with a museum curator, a tattoo artist, an obituary writer, a cemetery caretaker, a memorial photographer, and more. Each story is told with elegant descriptions and draws the reader as if they are standing beside her. Deep in historical information and modern connections this books is difficult to set down. At moments, you simply have those "aha" moments that leave you wanting to read further.
