Caitlin Doughty – Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Late Night Love Affair, hosted by Sarah Marshall and Candace Opper

This month Candace and Sarah discuss Caitlin Doughty’s debut, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory. Topics of conversation include functional morbidity, Heathers, Saint Saens’ Danse Macabre, Salem’s Lot, ebola, Jessica Mitford, pregnancy denial, Brain Candy, and golf.

If you’re staring death in the face why would you chase a tiny ball across a series of hills covered by rich fat men.

Candace Opper and Sarah Marshall met in the MFA creative writing program at Portland State. They share a love of slasher films, George C. Scott, conspiracy theory, Stephen King, VCRs, air-popped popcorn, Jurassic Park, and discussing over coffee their obsessions with suicide and serial killers, respectively.
