Suicide and depression, those oft-choked nuggets of contemporary literature, are a tricky terrain — but one Toews handles deftly. The ache and anger of the people left to witness and endure are not wrought darkly but with honesty and precision, tempered with the shocks of humor and relief we experience when confronted by life's inevitable finality, self-inflicted or not.
