My Life With Corpses
Since she was rescued by an iconoclastic neighbor named Winfield Evan Stark, now long dead, Oz has stayed far away from her childhood home. However, Mr. Stark's grave has recently turned up empty - occupied only by a pristine copy of Oz's narrative of her early life, entitled "My Life with Corpses." Oz, a professor of philosophy, returns to help find his body, hoping to receive the message she knows he is trying to send her. As she waits for two amiable workmen to dig up a neighboring gravesite to see if Mr. Stark might have switched resting spots, Oz reveals the peculiar details of her life and shares her hard-won experience in detecting and avoiding the living corpsedom that has befallen her family and so many others around her.
