I am always astonished when I see that someone else has read this astonishing work of Decca's. I was her researcher for her last book. Of all her work - this book was her greatest achivement-and yet hardly anyone knows of it.
I came across a reference to her book on 360 Degrees (it's on the resources page -- it looks like it's some sort of Ajax site, so I can't link directly to the page).
I absolutely agree with your assessment of the book -- reading it has been a pleasure--well, let me rephrase that. Maddening as her subject matter is, it's so compelling that I don't want to put the book down.
Are there any plans for the Mitford Institute to reissue some of her out-of-print books? And did you work on the revised edition of the American Way of Dying?
