Suicide is ugly, unglamorous, and it is never a solution. Its aftermath is dreadful.At first, Francis feels a terrible guilt. Could he have been a better son? What if he hadnt left his home in Montreal to go on a brief holiday in New York the weekend it happened? Soon the guilt turns to anger and then to a sadness so profound that he thinks he cant bear it.Le Fils du pendu is the map of a year following the suicide of a family member. In the course of months, with the love of his mother, with counseling, and with the balm of time, Francis takes his first steps toward coming to terms with his fathers -- and his familys -- tragedy. Le Fils du pendu is intensely personal, but it will resonate with anyone who has faced the loss of a loved one.This brilliant autobiographical first novel is an acute analysis of the grieving process. Although it is steeped in Franciss sadness, it is ultimately a story of hope. From the Trade Paperback edition.
