Let’s Get It Started!
Posted By Josh Slocum on April 27, 2011
It’s been five years since Lisa Carlson and I started researching and writing Final Rights, and it’s like Christmas morning to have the actual copies in our hands. We hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it. If you’re curious about the book, check out the first chapter, Circling the Hearses, free. It tells the story of how the American funeral business went from your local furniture store on Main Street in the 1800s to the $15-billion-a-year behemoth it is today.
As the book begins to sell, we’d love to hear from readers and potential readers. What do you want to talk about? Funeral prices? Whether it’s legal to perform a funeral yourself without hiring a funeral home? Natural burials without formaldehyde and concrete cases?
