Neither strictly a collection of stories nor a novel, the ten pieces that comprise My First Suicide straddle the line between intimate revelation and drunken confession. By turns nostalgic and poetic, these stories combine irony and humor, anecdote and gossip, love and desire with an irresistibly readable style that is vintage Pilch.
