Think your family’s dysfunctional? Think again.
*
George’s mother  has just died and his existence turned upside down. As if the seven  stages of grief aren’t enough to cope with, life is slinging yet more  contention his way.
*
There’s the vacuous girlfriend he detests and the alcoholic stepfather. Then there’s the recurring nightmare, the  voluptuous cousin he worships from afar and the uncle with a gangland  past.
*
Not to mention the bedwetting and involuntary erections…
*
Then when a family tree amongst his mother’s possessions throws up a mystery, George is plunged into a murky family past that harbours a closet full of bones and an  unthinkable taboo.
*
What they’re saying about it:
*
“Just finished reading this short story, and I can honestly say that I  enjoyed it. The story had heart and guts, the characters were believable and real, and the writing was imaginative and well thought out. I’m  going to read the second book called The Reluctant Anarchist, because  I’m interested in reading something that exercises my brain. This author has talent and I recommend you give him a shot.
