Death is often portrayed unrealistically in television and movies. It’s a major «scary» element to Halloween (in costume and decor). And death is no longer something that happens in the home, as it did for generations before us. As a mortician, author and owner of her own funeral home, Caitlin Doughty is dedicating her life to creating a more open conversation about death and dying, in a culture that has a huge discomfort with both. She speaks around the world on the history of death culture, rituals and the funeral industry, and her home is both a reflection of her passions and a celebration of the things she’s dedicated her life to.
