Resumen:

Bed : Mal Ede, part-prophet and part-tyrant, is an eccentric eldest child who undergoes an extravagant metamorphosis. On his twenty-fifth birthday, disillusioned with the limits of adulthood, Mal goes to bed and never emerges again. Narrated by Mal's quieter, diligent younger brother, Bed details how Mal's extreme and grotesque transformation began - and its ramifications on his haunted, fractured parents, his overshadowed brother, and the woman they both love, Lou. Over three decades the narrator tries, fails, and fails again to escape the exceptional presence of his older brother. Their father is forced to confront what legacy he will leave, their mother to abandon a life of her own. Darkly funny and unexpectedly tender, Bed is a clever reflection on mortality, obesity, celebrity, depression, and the broken promises of adulthood.
