Memoirist Joan Wickersham gives us a gift by including us in her effort to sort out the heartbreaking tangle left by her father's suicide. I loved the index format of the book, and found myself frozen at times by situations similar to some in my life 'which, I think will happen for everyone who reads the book'. Her seemingly fearless honesty about her thoughts and feelings around her father's death and how it changed her perspective on everything is infused with humor that perfectly hit my funny bone time and time again. Joan Wickersham has somehow managed to make a book about suicide a joy to read. A joy because she doesn't simply focus on the horror and pain of it, but also on the love, acceptance, and endurance of her spirit. I could not put it down!

By reading this book I found comfort in knowing that I was not alone in some of my crazy thoughts. After my father committed suicide in the same way, I desperately wanted to find a book that just didn't say "its not your fault". This book was more helpful than any "self help" book I could find. I encouraged my husband to read it as well, and he found it insightful.

Joan's way of trying to come to gripes with her father's suicide and the way she tells her story is engaging, sincere and and heart-griping. She helps those of us who have gone through her same experience feel less alone and still helps those who have not lost a love one through suicide understand the utter feeling of despair families feel. Her story is all too familiar to all of us who have dealt with a family member taking their own life. This is a must read for anyone who has lost a family member or friend through suicide!

Many things rang true for me, also a daughter of a suicide. Specifics are always a little different for different people, but the heart of it is the same.

I couldn't finish it.. it was too boring. She didn't really reflect and let the reader know how she was feeling at important moments during the book. It was more like this happened then this and then this.. I lost my father to suicide and I thought maybe I would be able to relate, but she doesn't let the reader into her emotions enough.
