August Book Discussion: Stiff - The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries—from the anatomy labs and human-sourced pharmacies of medieval and nineteenth-century Europe to a human decay research facility in Tennessee, to a plastic surgery practice lab, to a Scandinavian funeral directors' conference on human composting. Roach tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.
