I look forward to reading Jill Lepore‘s The Mansion of Happiness: A History of Life and Death. I was alerted to some content toward the end of the book by this review in The Daily Beast:

“On her way to visiting Robert C.W. Ettinger, the foremost proponent of cryonics, she pauses at a graveyard and visits a couple of tombstone companies. I wish she’d lingered, because there is no better place to study our changing ideas of death than a cemetery.”

Yes, I agree!

Has anyone read this book yet?
