“With Unbury Carol, Malerman takes on the Western genre, slipping in his own brand of weirdness we’ve come to expect from him, destined to make this story one we will not soon forget.”
Carol Evers has a secret. Throughout her life, she’s died many times, only to come back from the grave. She’s afflicted by a strange coma that mimics death, lasting several days. Two people know of her curse: Dwight, her husband, who married her for money, and now plots to take advantage of her perilous condition; and James Moxie, an outlaw who is Carol’s one true love. Once Moxie learns what Dwight did to Carol, he hits the trail to save her.
Buried alive, Carol struggles in the grave to rise again for her own survival.
