Kurt Andersen and poet and undertaker Thomas Lynch talk about artists, writers, and moviemakers who deal with the dead.
Thomas Lynch lives the real Six Feet Under. A poet and a professor of creative writing at the University of Michigan, Lynch runs his family's funeral home in Milford, Michigan. He's written several volumes of poetry and his collections of essays include The Undertaking, for which he was a National Book Award finalist, and Bodies in Motion and at Rest, which explores the relationship between the literary and mortuary arts. His newest book is called Booking Passage: We Irish and Americans.
