Summary

Neither strictly a collection of stories nor a novel, the ten short stories that comprise My First Suicide straddle the line between intimate revelation and drunken confession. These stories reveal a nostalgic and poetic Pilch, one who can pen a character¿s lyrical ode to the fate of his father¿s perfect chess table in one story, examine a teacher¿s desperate and dangerous infatuation with a student in the next, and then, always true to his obsessions, tell a remarkably touching story that begins by describing his narrator¿s excitement at the possibility of a three-way with the seductive soccer-fan, Anka Chow Chow. The stories of My First Suicide combine irony and humor, anecdote and gossip, love and desire with an irresistibly readable style that is vintage Pilch.
