Belletristik / Romanhafte Biographien


Elizabeth Meyers sweet, touching, and funny (Booklist) memoir reads as if Carrie Bradshaw worked in a funeral home a la Six Feet Under (Publishers Weekly, starred review).Good Mourning offers a behind-the-scenes look at a legendary funeral chapel on New York Citys Upper East Sidemixing big money, society drama, and the universal experience of grievingtold from the unique perspective of a fashionista turned funeral planner. Elizabeth Meyer stumbled upon a career in the midst of planning her own fathers funeral, which she turned into an upbeat party with Rolling Stones music, thousands of dollars worth of her mothers favorite flowers, and a personalized eulogy. Starting as a receptionist, Meyer quickly found she had a knack for helping people cope with their grief, as well as creating fitting send-offs for some of the citys most high-powered residents. Meyer has seen it all: two women who found out their deceased husband (yes, singular) was living a double life, a famous corpse with a missing brain, and funerals that cost more than most weddings. By turns illuminating, emotional, and darkly humorous, Good Mourning is a lesson in how the human heart grieves and growswhether youre wearing this seasons couture or drug-store flip-flops.
