Author: Allen Eskens
Title: The Life We Bury
College student Joe
Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing
assignment for an English class. His task is to
interview a stranger and write a brief biography of
the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a
nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There
he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's
life is ever the same.
Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran--and a convicted
murderer. With only a few months to live, he has
been medically paroled to a nursing home, after
spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of
rape and murder.
As Joe writes about Carl's life, especially Carl's
valor in Vietnam, he cannot reconcile the heroism of
the soldier with the despicable acts of the convict.
Joe, along with his skeptical female neighbor, throws
himself into uncovering the truth, but he is
hamstrung in his efforts by having to deal with
his dangerously dysfunctional mother, the guilt of
leaving his autistic brother vulnerable, and a
haunting childhood memory.
Thread by thread, Joe unravels the tapestry of
Carlís conviction. But as he and Lila dig deeper
into the circumstances of the crime, the stakes
grow higher. Will Joe discover the truth before
itís too late to escape the fallout?
