Dear Librarians,

THE POOR MAN'S GUIDE TO SUICIDE is a black comedy about a non-custodial father who loses his will to live — and fights to get it back. Initially inspired by my experience working in a prison while watching loved ones around me suffer the pain of "part-time parenting," the central story follows Wesley Weimer, a twice-divorced prison guard who persuades a prisoner to strangle him for ten thousand dollars — if he can find the money.

Scott Phillips, bestselling author of THE ICE HARVEST, called this tragicomic novel "A beautiful portrait of a decent man at the end of his rope."
