A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby
This book was a gift from my dear friend Anne Flectcher who we stayed with in San Jose. I have never really read any of Hornby's others. This is the story of four people from distinctly different walks of life who meet on the rooftop on New Year's Eve. They have decided to commit suicide by jumping off of the roof, but the decide to work together to get through a few more weeks instead. It is quirky, darkly humorous and British.
