Every day, funeral director Caitlin Doughty receives dozens of questions about death. What would happen to an astronaut’s body if it were pushed out of a space shuttle? Do people poo when they die? Can Grandma have a Viking funeral?
In the tradition of Randall Munroe’s WHAT IF?, Doughty’s new book blends her scientific understanding of the body and the intriguing history behind common misconceptions about corpses to offer factual, hilarious and candid answers to more than fifty urgent questions posed by her youngest fans. Readers will learn what happens if you die on an aeroplane, the best soil for mummifying your dog and whether or not you can preserve your friend’s skull as a keepsake.
Featuring illustrations from Dianné Ruiz, WILL MY CAT EAT MY EYEBALLS? will delight anyone interested in the fascinating truth about what will happen to our bodies after we die.
