Al MacLachlan After the Funeral previous next   Ekstasis Editions

In After the Funeral, a man wakes up beside the lifeless body of a stranger. He has no memory of his own identity or past. Has there been a murder and is he, in fact, the murderer? A surrealistic noir thriller, After the Funeral takes place in contemporary Vancouver — or, perhaps, only in the mind of the protagonist. Al MacLachlan's deeply internal tale, reminiscent of Paul Auster's New York Trilogy, plays brilliantly upon the illusion of reality as amnesiac Rory Jesson attempts to reconstruct the details of his recent life. In this gripping first novel, Al MacLachlan probes the paranoia that leads to insanity, when everything familiar suddenly becomes strange.

Journalist, documentary writer/director and music video director Al MacLachlan written for The Globe and Mail, The Vancouver Sun and The Georgia Strait.After studies at Concordia University (Fine Arts) and Seneca (Film and Television) and wide travels in Europe and Mexico, MacLachlan now resides in Gibsons, BC. After the Funeral is his first novel.
