Albert Townsend leads an ostensibly boring life working at his mother-in-law's boutique. But in his off-hours, Albert is a murderer.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Narrator Albert Townsend's life pivots around his having murdered his boarding-school roommate, a little-liked bully, at age 14. The plot skates between the early 1950s, when "The Event" occurred, and the1980s, when someone finally finds the body. Although no one ever discovers Albert's culpability, his obsession with the deed results in his subsequent empty marriage and meaningless job. Not much really happens until late in the book, when a sudden eruption of rude and violent behavior surfacesAin both time periods. For larger collections.
