One of the funniest and most unusual books of the year....Gross, educational, and unexpectedly sidesplitting.âEntertainment WeeklyStiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadaversâsome willingly, some unwittinglyâhave been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.
