It’s fall 1988 and the narrator of Sunshine on an Open Tomb is doing his best to work this out on both the colossal scale of global politics and the interior level of personal intimacy through a fog of perpetual tipsiness and generations of inbreeding. The brooding runt of a political dynasty whose father is about to be appointed Prez, our narrator has been living freely among The Barbarians for years when The Media, desperate for content at the advent of the 24-hour news cycle, aims its fervent interest at him. The Family, famously quick to eradicate unpredictability, plucks him from his comforts and relocates him to the secret family compound he hasn't been welcome to in years. There, away from the everydayness that blanketed him, he must navigate a shape-shifting estate and confront an impossible love triangle in order to find an elusive bunker where he will set to work on his revenge: he will correct the best-selling, so-called objective biography of The Family with the real story—the book you’re reading about right now.
