The dead Dorotea Giglio serves as the narrator of this surprising and beautiful novel after she slashes her wrists in a bathtub in the very first paragraph of the book. What follows next is a troubling, darkly funny, and creative examination of life and life after death. From the beginning, the reader knows that the author is not afraid to shock and approach the somber, grim topics we often avoid.
