Publisher's Summary

A son sits at his mother's deathbed, hesitant to leave her side. He leafs through one of her old photo albums, remembering her abusive, estranged father. When a visit to a funeral home turns into a conversation with a beautiful, mysterious woman, he develops a deeper - and perhaps darker - understanding of his relationship with his mother.

A beautiful friendship starts in a mortuary

Tobias Wolff captures the reader's attention right away with slice-of-life stories that are both preposterous AND highly likely. This romance that happens in a mortuary gives us insight into the main character and into ourselves. Love it.
