Driving with Dead People by Monica Holloway
It has been a while since I read a memoir, and I had to wait a long time to get this from the library, so I figured it must be good. The author is a graduate of Kenyon College in Ohio. She grew up with the daughters of the town undertaker - thus the title. But the story, which begins small-town quaint, takes an ugly turn as family secrets are revealed much later in life. I was drawn into the story, much like with an Augustan Burroughs book.
