My review of Katherine Shonk’s Happy Now? is up at PopMatters.
Claire’s husband kills himself on Valentine’s Day during a party by leaping off the balcony of a Chicago high-rise building. It so happens that it was the three year anniversary of the couple’s first date. Jay, who suffered from depression, didn’t leave behind a suicide note. Instead, he left behind a binder, organized by subject such as finances, Fang the cat, and his car.
As always, enjoy.
