A young socialite takes a job at a legendary funeral chapel on New York City's Upper East Side. It's Gossip Girl meets Six Feet Under, told from the perspective of a fashionista turned funeral planner. Elizabeth Meyer stumbled upon the job in the midst of planning her own father's funeral, which she turned into an upbeat party with thousands of dollars worth of flowers and a personalized eulogy. Starting out as a receptionist, Meyer quickly found she had a knack for helping people cope with their grief, as well as creating fitting send-offs for some of the city's most high-powered residents. Meyer has seen it all: two women who found out their deceased husband (yes, singular) was living a double life, a famous corpse with a missing brain, and funerals that cost more than most weddings. A lesson in how the human heart grieves whether you're wearing this season's couture or drug-store flip-flops. Elizabeth Meyer has an MBA from Cass Business School in London and certification in thanatology from the Association for Death Education and Counseling.
