Laona’s October Recommendation

One Last Thing Before I Go by Jonathan Tropper

This is “a novel about fractured families, relationships, lost souls, and trying to make good.  Wonderfully written characters, that are extremely likable, especially the tight group of middle aged divorced men who support their fellow downtrodden.  Here is a brief description: ‘Drew Silver is dying in many ways: his marriage has been over for seven years, his ex-wife is getting remarried, his career as a rock drummer is long past, his 18-year-old daughter is pregnant, and he has a life-threatening heart condition…Silver has never been much of a dad or a husband, so when he finds out about his defective heart, he determines he will not have a life-saving operation.  After all, what does he have to live for?'”
