An office worker plans his own suicide party... A fading starlet goes to unnatural lengths for a comeback.... One man finds that in times of trouble, it's easiest just to be kidnapped... R.T. Barnes offers the reader catharsis in the dark places between joy and despair, sanity and madness, the real and the unreal. Fast paced, deeply odd and often hilarious, Suicide of the Month is a must read. The stories owe an existential debt to Kafka or Beckett... simple prose underscores Barnes' sublime take on the absurdity of modern life. It's a fun read... Josh Brandon, Mud and Water
