When Andrew Meredith’s father was fired from a university for unspecified sexual misconduct, it throws his family into long-lasting despair. Andrew treads water in suspended adolescence. Broke, Andrew moves home and takes a job with his father as a “remover,” the unseen workers who take away bodies of those who die at home. He describes intimate, poignant, and morbidly comic aspects of the job, and begins to see his father as an imperfect man who loves his family despite his flaws
