Now as Earl’s health is deteriorating, our misanthropic narrator must deal with the knowledge that once Earl passes away, he will be all by himself. He uses sexual encounters at the video porn shop and trips to Walgreens as diversion. Along the way, he offers observations on disease and death that are both humorous and upsetting.
