About the Book:

Funeral Platter, Ames’s kaleidoscopic follow-up to his award-winning novel Buffalo Lockjaw, might be the literary offspring of Etgar Keret and Amelia Gray we did not know we wanted. Ames manages to locate humor everywhere—from the absurd rituals of courtship to the burdens of American manhood to the bizarre things we do out of familial love. Ames playfully ducks expectations offering a fun house world where your parents spend their retirement cheerfully caged and your sister cuddles up each night with the burnt log she named Marilyn.
