The controlled and calm life of William Oaks is shattered when his parents die suddenly in a car accident. A reclusive paper conservator at a renowned Toronto museum, William must face the obsessions and denials that have formed him: delusional family history, religious fundamentalism, and get-rich-quick schemes. Memory and facts collide, threatening to derail his life and career as William feverishly prepares for an important exhibition on the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

Review:

"Absorbing novel . . . A cautious optimist, Murray grants this wounded soul a chance for happiness while acknowledging the work required to clasp it fully." —Brett Josef Grubisic, straight.com

"Ken Murray’s powerful, poignant debut . . . a book about grief has no right to be a page-turner, but this one is." —Jade Colbert, Globe and Mail

"Ken Murray’s solemn and entrancing debut . . . Eulogy is a serious, graceful novel that interrogates the roots of a particular strain of family unhappiness." —Ryan D. Matthews, brooklynrail.org

"Well written and very thought provoking . . . The ending truly caught me by surprise and I do love that in a book." —Patty Woodland, brokenteepee.com

"I enjoyed Eulogy immensely. It’s smart, occasionally funny, and very human. There are so many reasons to read this book: pick one and take the plunge." —Andrew Fookes, literaryfictionreview.com
