This dream like narrative of a village in crisis is a superbly cynical horror, that will entertain, amuse and chill the reader.
A bulldozer driver is ordered to demolish the village cemetary in advance of the construction of a through-road. He observes the villagers thrown into turmoil as they realize they must relocate their dead to higher ground. These orders come from the city and the powers that be, from those who have never set foot in the village. At first the villagers do not believe it. Then they have only one week to prepare.
In digging up the cemetary they dig up the history of the village and the families that have lived there, revealing the bones of secrets long buried - and some not so long buried. And in fact some not quite yet . . . dead!
