Despite receiving his ashes and a note saying that he has died, two brothers believe their father's death has been faked in this satirical novelIn 1990, two Bulgarian brothers, Ned and Ango, receive an unusual package from the USA: a black plastic box containing the ashes of their late father, a professor allowed out of communist Bulgaria to teach in the USA during the 1980s. However, the brothers are left with a nagging sense that something is not quite right. Since neither of them has seen the body they begin to doubt if he is he really dead. But if the death had been faked, why? 15 years later, as the brothers forge new and very different lives (Ned a management consultant; Ango a dog walker to the rich) in their new home in New York, some answers begin to emerge . . . A darkly comic tale of disillusionment, The Black Box explores the nature and logic of our Western neo-liberal capitalist system and how so many of us are all driven to acts of greed, imprudence, and recklessness in the pursuit of money and wealth.
