Bonnie"s own journey from bar-tending to truck driving, massage therapy, elder abuse, and also stand-up comedy and also acting never stopped she from gift Doug"s actual number one fan. So as soon as Bonnie"s alcoholic, hoarding life finally pertained to an end, so many weird adventures later in countryside Arizona, the was inevitable that Doug and also Bonnie would be together for one last journey. Digging up Mother complies with Doug"s absurd, chaotic, and often obscene life together it intersects v that the his best friend, biggest fan, and also love the his life, his mother Bonnie. And also it every starts with her death, one of the many memorable and also amazing farewells friend will ever before read.
