Remember Me: A Lively Tour of the New American Way of Death
Lisa Takeuchi Cullen (au)
A humorous & poignant chronicle of Cullen’s travels around the country to discover how Americans -- baby boomers, in particular -- are reinventing the rites of dying. The people who reinvented youth, redefined careers, & reconceived middle age have created a new attitude toward the afterlife. She begins her journey at a national undertakers’ convention where she checks out the latest in death merchandise. She tours the country’s first “green” cemetery, meets a mummification advocate at his pyramid, & visits the Frozen Dead Guy Days festival. She crashes a Hmong funeral in Minneapolis & a tango funeral in Washington, D.C. “An account of the ways in which Americans are designing new occasions to mark death -- by celebrating life.” Illustrations.
