Brigham Young VIII wants to die.
Written in the fragmented narrative, Suicide By Everest is the violent, darkly humorous story of Brigham "Brig" Young VIII, first-in-line to inherit the riches and influence that his family has accumulated over the centuries through their hotel empire and deep connections to the Latter-Day Saint religion. For most of his life, Brig has disappointed his Father, embarrassed his family, shamed his faith, ruined relationships and like the opiate-addict that he is, blames everyone but himself. Eventually hitting bottom, Brig decides that his only option is suicide. But not just any suicide. Brig resolves to make a vengeful statement of his death, embarking on a physical, mental and spiritual journey from his home in Salt Lake City to Hong Kong, through China, and finally to his frozen gravesite on Mount Everest.
