This nearly 400 page suicide note of the Alter sisters is not just a suicide note—it is the history of their family. Lady, Vee, and Delph feel cursed, just another branch of their family tree, destined to die by their own hands.
But where and when did the curse originate? And why do these women of the Upper West Side feel the need to kill themselves?
Patience, dear Reader, all will be revealed. The first half of the novel is rather slow, but the second half is the payoff for your patience. This novel is interesting, sad, and even darkly humorous at times. Enjoy!
