In the Hands of Anubis
Trevor Wallace, a tractor salesman with a lost childhood and a stalled relationship, is en route to Africa on business. In the Frankfurt airport he stumbles over the bag of Constance Ebenezer, a gregarious old woman who is traveling the world with extraordinary contraband in her luggage-the ashes of her three dead husbands. Marooned briefly in Cairo together, these two unlikely companions embark on an emotional journey that turns Trevor's predictable and well-ordered world upside down. Replete with coyotes, dog-headed gods and broken tractors, "In the Hands of Anubis" is a wonderfully playful exploration of human relationships and the unexpected guides we meet in life.
