The chapter in The Undertaking was about children and parenting.
Because the book is about death, and being a funeral director, and being a poet, and living in a small Michigan town, and life.
It is a much better book than Stiff.
At least, in my opinion.
And I would imagine that most people who are in the temporal proximity of losing someone dear to them would agree.
It's sufficient to say that after having read this book I am appreciative of the work of someone who embalms rather than abhorred by it.
