The Next Day
Last week, Pop Sandbox launched The Next Day during the Hot Docs Festival in Toronto. From the publisher that did Kenk (a Quill and Quire Best Book of 2010), comes an intensely amazing portrait of four people who attempt suicide. The title comes from the question: what if they had waited one more day? The book deals with the suicide attempts right up front, which is a relief; waiting for that until the end of the book would be tough to endure. The reviews have been amazing...from Open Book:"as a rule, Open Book doesn’t post reviews or recommendations, but I am going to break that rule. I urge you to buy a copy of The Next Day. It is a sublimely beautiful, haunting and viscerally moving book." Check out the stunning trailer and the rest of what they have to say here.
