Sinopsis:

In the Bales-McCord family there are several old people contemplating their final resting places. Two of them--Glenn and Laura Bales--are in bad shape, and everybody is wondering which one will go first. Join them in Summerlin as they attend to the business of passing on--and passing down. A BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB SELECTION.

From the Publisher:

My first introduction to Clyde Edgerton's work was a few years back at a reading he did for IN MEMORY OF JUNIOR -- and boy did he knock my socks off! I laughed so hard and was so charmed by his work that I became a devotee on the spot. His wacky characters, his unique cadence, and the clever whimsy of the story gave this title a permanent spot on my bookshelf.

I can't even recount how many times I've reread the passage when the aging Miss Laura takes out her agressions on the town folk by eating a box of Whitman's Sampler candy piece by piece. She names each piece of candy and then pops it in her mouth as if she's extinguishing the frustrating person's existence. Sounds odd, but the scene is so raucously funny that it brings tears to my eyes.

H. Smith, Publicity
