A truly insightful book that makes for fascinating reading

Sue, Masterton Paper Plus - February 2020

You’ve seen the TVNZ show and now you can read about the big-hearted duo Francis and Kaiora - funeral directors in Auckland. “They’re changing the way we think about death and grief. Life As A Casketeer reveals how Francis and Kaiora grew up in families that had few possessions but were rich with love and tikanga, and how they came to work in their often misunderstood profession. It’s also a book about the Maori worldview and traditional funeral customs. The Tipenes make death feel less mysterious and life feel more precious. This book is a love for whanau, culture and each other.” A truly insightful book that makes for fascinating reading and reflects the caring, compassionate nature of the Tipenes working in a very unique field of work.
