Some brief overview of book

A chilling memoir of the Tri-State Crematory incident In February 2002, hundreds of abandoned and decayed bodies were discovered at the Tri-State Crematory in rural Georgia, making it the largest mass desecration in modern American history. The perpetratora well-respected family man and a former hometown football starhad managed to conceal the horror for five years. Among the bodies found at the Tri-State Crematory was that of Brent Hendricks's father.

To quell the psychic disturbance surrounding the desecration, Hendricks embarked on a pilgrimage to the crematory site in Georgia. In A Long Day at the End of the World, he reveals his very complicated relationship with the South as he tries to reconcile his love-hate feelings for the culture with his own personal and familial history there, and his fascination with the disturbed landscape. In achingly beautiful prose, Hendricks explores his fraught relationship with his fathernot just the grief that surrounded his death but the uncanniness of his resurrection.

It's a story that's so heart-wrenching, so unbelievable, and so sensational that it would be easy to tell it without delving deep. But Hendricks's inquiry is unrelenting, and he probes the extremely difficult questions about the love between a parent and a child, about the way human beings treat each otherin life and in deathand about the sanctity of the body. It's the perfect storm for a true Southern Gothic tale.
