New Year's Eve. Strangers Martin, Maureen, Jess and JJ plan to commit suicide by jumping off a high building called Toppers' House in London. Their plans for a solitary death are ruined when they accidentally meet each other on the roof. What happens next is an hilarious account of a reluctant involvement in each other’s lives; forming a kind of support group; a pact to postpone their suicides until Valentine’s Day at least; a holiday in Tenerife; witnessing someone else actually jumping off and finally deciding to delay their final decision on killing themselves for another six months as they try to pull back from the brink.
Very funny, well written, excellent, thoroughly enjoyed it. Started reading it whilst on holiday in Zanzibar, borrowed it from the resort library. Didn’t finish it before I left so I borrowed it from the library back home.
