Suicide (French Literature Series)

Suicide (French Literature Series)

"A friend takes his own life. You are left to jigsaw the details of his life into a fiction, as though anything about our time here resembles a story with curated beginnings and endings; rising action or falling action; thrilling denouements. But when the details of a life become overwhelming, a torrent of facts and observations that cannot be made logical, we get a book like Suicide. Not wholly fiction, not wholly anything. A perfect window of grief. 'I remember you at random,' Levé says. 'My brain resurrects you through stochastic details, like picking marbles out of a bag.' Suicide is a life told in facts instead of narrative, like reading a diary scratched in grief. It is the only book I can read again, again, and again."
