Cousin Tina Disappears

Length: 128 pages2 hours


Cousin Tina Disappears is a convoluted story about an isolated family living in a small, American town. When Aunt Shirley returns home from a lengthy visit to a quack doctor, one in a series of painful treatments for an imaginary tumor, she finds Tina crawling in a heap of garbage on the kitchen floor. An argument ensues and Tina is killed by her Aunt, probably by accident. Tina’s cousin, a long-time guest in the home, acts as narrator: describing the murder, an infestation of flies, the humiliation of selling shoddy Christmas cards, a failed attempt to enlist in the Army, and his role in the disposal of Tina’s body.
