Malcolm Ede was never a normal kid. His behavior didn’t always make life easy for his family, especially his younger brother. But nothing prepares Mal’s family for what he decides to do on his 25th birthday—stay in bed. Indefinitely.

What follows is his brother’s account of life before and after that fateful decision. Most graphic and frightening is Mal’s weight gain after he takes to bed. At a hundred stone, Mal becomes one with the mattress. Eww!

Engaging and strange.
