Description

Hereditation tells the story of the Sloane family. Living in New York in the middle of the 20th Century, brothers Erwin and Maynard share their brownstone Harlem house with their mother, a perpetually ill woman who has recently suffered the indignity of being abandoned by her philandering husband, Ezra. When Ezra dies of a heart attack, a chest is unearthed, the contents of which force the Sloane brothers to look at themselves in a different light. Will they succumb to the depravity that has haunted their family for generations, or will they be the first to break free and escape the madness and perversion? Darkly humourous, wickledly disturbing, and utterly compelling.
