Beschreibung

In the early 1960s this classic work of investigative journalism was a number one bestseller. The savage and hilarious analysis of America's funeral practices rocked the industry and shocked the public. This up-dated edition (revised just before the author's death) shows that if anything the industry has become more pernicious than ever in its assault on our practices and wallets. And it's an industry that - alas - sooner or later affects us all.

Jessica Mitford believed in social justice, love, the absurdities of power and the vital importance of jokes.

Vorwort

* A savage and hilarious anatomy of America's funeral practices - a classic by this famous English muckraker - revised just before her death
* 'Outrageously appalling, wickedly funny and subversive' TIMES
