One Friday in April, by Donald Antrim

Staff Pick

Part memoir and part study of what causes someone to try to kill himself, One Friday in April recounts Antrim’s terrifying brush with suicide--an act he reframes as an illness in and of itself, and not just an outcome of a distinct mental disease. Written without chapter breaks, this book-length meditation on taking one's life weaves Antrim's and his family's harrowing experience into the wider cultural and social history of suicide, resulting in a brave testament that should help direct the ongoing conversation and shift attitudes about this difficult subject.
