"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."

& Other Lessons From

The Crematory


Caitlin Doughty


caitlin doughty


More than 56 million people died worldwide in 2013 -- 2.5 million of them in the United States where the billion dollar Funeral industry is becoming more "sanitized" each year. "Memorial Services" are often staged without the body of the decedent. It’s a far cry from the way society dealt with death in the mid-18th Century. Back then, family members died at home and loved ones prepared the body for burial. Mourners came to the family home to pay their respects. Today, most people die in hospitals or hospices. Mortician and Funeral Director Caitlin Doughty wants to revolutionize the funeral industry and teach people not to fear aging, death and the body disposal process. Her book is part memoir and part manifesto, demystifying death and urging the acceptance of what she advocates as the "good death".

"Boldly Original Fiction."


Eimear McBride

eimear mcbride


Hailed as a genius who's written a classic, Irish novelist Eimear McBride tells a coming of age story about an impoverished Irish girl that breaks the bonds of conventional writing to challenge fans of Literary Fiction. Influenced by Novelist James Joyce, McBride writes in a stream-of-consciousness construct that unveils the psyche of the Girl from early childhood to womanhood in a compelling fashion unlike anything you've read before.

alona pulde-matthew_lederman


Greek Physician Hippocrates wisely urged his students to "let Food be thy Medicine". In their 4-week "Forks Over Knives Plan", Family Practitioner Alona Pulte and Internal Medicine Specialist Matthew Lederman explain how eating a plant-based diet can be a tasty and fulfilling dietary alternative that's scientifically proven to eliminate chronic conditions including high blood pressure, gastroenteritis, diabetes and high-cholesterol. This book guides you through a gradual transition from eating meats, oils and processed foods to consuming delicious dishes built on a wide variety of grains, veggies and fruits. The Plan includes 100 recipes (with color photos) from professional Chefs...not just salads, but pizza, burritos, wraps and pancakes, too!
