The Undertaker's Daughter by Kate Mayfield

The Undertaker's Daughter - Kate Mayfield


The Undertaker's Daughter - Kate Mayfield 


Fans of Six Feet Under will undoubtedly enjoy this memoir of a childhood spent living in a funeral home. I was hoping for a little more nitty-gritty, along the same lines as Stiff by Mary Roach orWorking Stiff by Judy Melinek, but overall this was an interesting collection of anecdotes that I would recommend to other fans of quirky memoirs.
