Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

In this funny, insightful memoir, a young socialite risks social suicide when she takes a job at a legendary funeral chapel on New York City s Upper East Side.
Good Mourning offers a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most famous funeral homes in the country where not even big money can protect you from the universal experience of grieving. It s Gossip Girl meets Six Feet Under, told from the unique perspective of a fashionista turned funeral planner.
Elizabeth Meyer stumbled upon a career in the midst of planning her own father s funeral, which she turned into an upbeat party with Rolling Stones music, thousands of dollars worth of her mother s favorite flowers, and a personalized eulogy. Starting out 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 city s 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 grows whether you re wearing this season s couture or drug-store flip-flops.
