This powerful narrative of how the Irish 'do' death is at times funny, at times sad, sharply observed and deeply moving.  In this book Ann Marie Hourihane follows the real experiences of individuals; attends inquests, talks to people who work to prevent suicide, follows teams of specialists who work to locate the remains of those 'disappeared' by the IRA, and explores some of the more surprising histories of Irish death practices. Filled with short observations and individual stories, this is one of those books that once you pick it, it's hard to put down, showing Hourihane to be a master at chronicling Irish life.
