    ABOUT THE BOOK


    The Undertaking: Life Studies from the Dismal Trade was a winner of an American Book Award and a finalist for the National Book Award. It is not a dry, dismal book about death. It is a book about life and those who attend to the grieving. It meditates on marriage, parenthood, Ireland, and medically-controlled passings.
