How To Dispose of Dead Elephants

by Andrew Gretes - £7.99  Sandstone Press Ltd (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781908737656 | ISBN 10: 1908737654

How to Dispose of Dead Elephants is an imaginative novel which explores themes of illness and identity through oracles and exorcisms, pranks and fables.
 
The plot centres on Stubb Marakas, a young college dropout, who awakes one morning with the sudden urge to doodle Aesop's fables. Aided by his best friend, Mark Connor (a swashbuckling Korean adoptee), the two set out to find the meaning behind this curious tick, embarking on a journey which will force the two friends to come to grips with not only Stubb's re-emerging epilepsy and Mark's unknown origins, but also the failing health of their childhood guru, an old Greek trickster called "Papou".
 
Gretes' debut novel is a hilarious coming-of-age tale which is equally moving and entertaining.
