Description
Smart, darkly funny, and life-affirming, How Not to Die Alone is the bighearted debut novel we all need, for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, it's a story about love, loneliness, and the importance of taking a chance when we feel we have the most to lose."Off-beat and winning...Gives resiliency and the triumph of the human spirit a good name." —The Wall Street JournalAll Andrew wants is to be normal. That's why his coworkers believe he has the perfect wife and two children waiting at home for him after a long day. But the truth is, his life isn't exactly as people think . . . and his little white lie is about to catch up with him. Because in all of Andrew's efforts to fit in, he's forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it's finally time for him to start."Roper illuminates Andrew's interior life to reveal not what an odd duck he is, but what odd ducks we all are." —The New York Times Book Review
