47. “Stiff,” Mary Roach

An interesting and quick read. Roach’s books are almost hypertextual. I like her use of footnotes and her insatiable Googling. It’s a pretty quick read and worth a go.

By the way, one frightening fact that I learned from this book is that, until 1965, necrophilia was not a crime in any US state.
