Summary "Sheri Booker was only fifteen years old when she started working at Wylie Funeral Home in West Baltimore. Reeling from the death of her beloved great aunt, she found comfort in her new job and quickly became immersed in her work. Before she knew it, Booker had spent nine years of her life in the company of stiffs-- and those who prepared, buried, eulogized, mourned, remembered, and profited from them"--Book jacket.
