Michelle Williams is young and attractive, she has close family
ties as well as a busy social life - but she is far from usual. She
is a mortuary technician and her job involves dealing with those
things in life that many people do not wish to experience directly.
Yet life in the mortuary is neither gruesome nor sad. Told with
good humour and common sense, we are introduced to a host of
characters - the pathologists, many of them eccentric, some
downright mad; the undertakers, the hospital porters and the man
from the coroner's office who sings to Michelle every morning. The
incidents too ensure that no two days are ever the same. From the
tragic to the hilarious they include: The fitness fanatic who was
run over as he did pressups in the road on a dark night The
decapitated motorcyclist The guide dog who led his owner on to the
railway tracks - and left him there The forty stone man for whom an
entire refrigerated lorry had to be hired because he wouldn't fit
in the mortuary cooler Over the course of her first year Michelle
has to deal with situations and emotions that few of us will ever
experience, and does so while retaining a sense of humour and a
sense of perspective.
