Im Jahr 2100 wird die Erde Opfer einer Alien-Invasion. Eine Handvoll Menschen nimmt den Kampf um die Zukunft der Menschheit auf. SF-Abenteuer von Alfred Bekker. Ein Gebäude, das den Eindruck machte, nicht für Menschen gemacht zu sein! Dieser Gedanke manifestierte sich sehr deutlich in Ellroys Bewusstsein. Ellroy…
A century after the impulsive McKinnon brothers set out to tame the Canadian wilderness and instead landed in Mattagash, Maine, their madcap legacy reigns supreme. It's 1959, and Pearl and Sicily McKinnon have gathered to plan a funeral for Marge, their older sister dying from the rare disease beriberi, thanks to her eccentric diet.
Pearl, who skipped town with big-city dreams only to marry a funeral director, soon clashes with the long-suffering Sicily, who herself is coping with an unfaithful husband. To make matters worse, Sicily's teenage daughter is lusting after the town's blackest sheep, a ne'er-do-well twice her age.
Brimming with darkly quirky humor and irresistible spunk, The Funeral Makers explores the inescapable ironies of American life and family dynamics and captures the spirit of a world that is as once familiar and quickly fading from view.
