But be warned: It's set in a graveyard over the course of one long night, and is narrated by a chorus of voices. Grief stricken, the president visits the crypt several times, just to hold Willie's body. He can't let him go — and Willie won't let go either. He's stuck in the 'bardo,' a kind of purgatory — neither fully dead, but not alive. And he's surrounded by a dazzling cast of fellow bardo residents, none of whom seem to realize that their lives are over. Guilty Pleasures is a horror and mystery novel by Laurell K.
