Erica Buist, Writer
Erica Buist is a journalist and writer from London, England, and the author of the forthcoming book This Party's Dead. After finding her father-in-law dead after eight days, she embarked on a journey around the world to seven festivals for the dead – in Mexico, Nepal, Sicily, Thailand, Madagascar, Japan and Indonesia – to see how other cultures deal with death anxiety. Along the way she also met a voodoo priestess, an anti-death campaigner, and was even hit in the head by a corpse.
