Michelle Williams, an attractive young woman with close family ties and an active social life, describes her first extraordinary year in her unusual new job as a mortuary technician. It's a year in which, with innate good humour, she encounters death at its most tragic, bizarre, and hilarious. Her tale, neither gruesome nor sad, is enlivened by a range of colourful and eccentric characters, from pathologists and coroners to hospital porters and undertakers, giving us a glimpse of life - and death - that few of us will ever experience.

    " Interesting and funny. Not for the faint of heart. "

    " Fascinating look at the coroner's office. But a bit disturbing that you need know background or training. Just show up and they'll train you on the job. "

    " Not a literary masterpiece by any means, but an interesting view of a British morgue attendant's day-to-day activities. Did you know that proper evisceration produces a chain link of organs which start at the tongue and proceed on to heart, lungs, spleen, kidneys, and liver all connected to each other? You will discover other little tidbits like this throughout the book. "

    " When this author stuck to the morgue her book was enjoyable. What I wanted to read about was her learning the ropes of her new job. The bodies, the problems, the anxieties etc. However, when she meandered off into talking about her boyfriend, their dogs, and her family's holidays, I got very bored. I also noticed two different typos in the book. Editor! Also if I had to hear this woman say "we worked like beavers" or "he had hands like shovels" again, I was going to scream. I didn't realize when I got it that this book is about the English system, so included along with the gore were many asides about pubs and tea. (Yawn.) I'd say, let this one pass you by. "
