David Giffels’s latest memoir, Furnishing Eternity: A Father, a Son, a Coffin, and a Measure of Life, was praised by the New York Times Book Review as “tender, witty and ... painstakingly and subtly wrought,” and by Kirkus Reviews as “a heartfelt memoir about the connection between a father and son.” It was a January 2018 Book of the Month pick by Amazon and Powell’s Books and a New York Times Book Review “Editors’ Choice.”

Giffels’s previous books include The Hard Way on Purpose: Essays and Dispatches From the Rust Belt, and the memoir All the Way Home, winner of the Ohioana Book Award. He is the co-author, with Jade Dellinger, of the rock biography Are We Not Men? We Are Devo! and, with Steve Love, Wheels of Fortune: The Story of Rubber in Akron.
