Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

By Mary Roach

Email This Page

Not to be read during meals, Roach has made a name for herself as a quirky writer of niche micro histories. With Stiff, she turns her attention to, well, dead bodies: to how they’re used (and abused), their role in science, and their processing and disposal. With her trademark humour, Roach manages to turn a sombre topic into a rollicking read. If you’re just a tiny bit morbid, then this book’s to die for.

Perfect for:

  • Lovers of taboo topics told through witty prose.
  • Readers who have pondered the topic of organ donation.
  • Anyone who wants to shock people during mealtime.
