By Edouard Levé
Edouard Levé introduced the manuscript for his ultimate ebook, Suicide, quite a few days earlier than he took his personal existence. Suicide isn't, then, easily "another" novel--it is, in a feeling, the author's personal indirect, public suicide be aware, a different meditation in this so much severe of refusals. providing itself as an research into the suicide of a detailed friend--perhaps actual, might be fictional--Levé supplies us, bit by bit, a impressive portrait of a guy, with all his skills and flaws, who selected to reject his existence and the entire those who enjoyed him in prefer of oblivion. progressively, via Levé's appealing, casually obsessive, pointillist ruminations, we come to understand a stoic, brilliant, considerate guy who bears greater than a mild resemblance to the writer himself. Suicide is a near-exhaustive catalog of the ramifications of the act for which it used to be named, and a special and depression farewell to lifestyles.
