Description - Family Skeleton by Carmel Bird
From inside her Toorak
mansion, Margaret, matriarch, widow of Edmund Rice
O'Day of O'Day Funerals, secretly surveys her family
in the garden. Everyone, including Margaret herself, is
oblivious to the secrets that threaten to be uncovered by
a visiting American relative who is determined to excavate
the O'Day's family history. How far will Margaret go
in order to bury the truth? Family Skeleton examines
the dark heart of a family that has for generations
been engaged in dark business. You can't dig a grave without
disturbing the smooth surface of the ground.
Deftly woven with elegant
wit and with compassion, this dark comedy is about
what you might unearth if you dig deep enough.
