We'll Be the Last Ones CoverCheck out a new review by Associate Fiction Editor J. Haley Campbell of Rachael Hanel's new memoir, We'll Be the Last Ones to Let You Down: Memoir of a Gravedigger's Daughter. "Growing up in cemeteries, Hanel observed her gravedigger father—known fondly as Digger O’Dell—tend to people’s last physical stop in this world. Hanel was a quizzical and imaginative child who, under her mother’s guidance, began to use stories to piece together the why and how of death."
