Product Description


There is much laughter in Teodorovici s novel, the uproarious laughter of characters faced with a ridiculous world, the healthy laughter of the reader, black humor, the absurd, self-irony, linguistic humor, and situational comedy. But behind the scenes there is also enormous sadness. The sadness of the clown (the reader-clown, the character-clown), who is all the sadder the more acutely he understands his condition as a man who, after having failed at life, cannot help but fail at death. (Sanda Tivadar, Familia)

The Suicide Club June 23 2015
By James W. Fonseca - Published on
Format: Paperback
Three young crazy guys in Romania form a kind of “suicide club.” One climbs out on a window ledge each day, hoping to get the courage to jump. Another repeatedly attempts to hang himself but only when he knows he will be rescued. You get the idea. Meanwhile, unknowingly, one actually contributes to the suicide of an ex-woman friend and another accidentally kills a prostitute in a bar fight. We don’t get any background on what drove these guys to this point, so it all comes across as a bit silly. And that may be the main point because one character speculates that God “…endowed us with free will merely for His own amusement.” The book is translated from the Romanian.
