How Not to Die Alone -- Richard Roper

Staff Pick

Andrew Smith's job is to go into the homes of those who have died alone and dig through their belongings in the hopes of finding a next of kin or at least money for the funeral. In his spare time he finds solace in Ella Fitzgerald’s music and an online community of model train aficionados. But then he meets Peggy, and this is just the beginning. Dark and funny, How Not to Die Alone is a story exploring loneliness, the ways we shield ourselves from others and the walls we build. But it’s also a story of love and friendship and finding the strength to break those walls.
