Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young widow who lusts, a daughter who aches, a shopaholic who hungers...The Joy of Funerals is a riveting collection that explores the lives of nine young women, each willing to take drastic measures to fill the voids created by longing and loneliness.

Synopsis:

Reader's Guide included. Rep
