on 1 reviews
Some six months before killing himself, Lucky Saurelius is honor bound to serve as a groomsman at his best friend's wedding. Armed with a rented tux, carton of cigarettes and a bottle of Grey Goose, he strikes out for Pennsylvania. With one last chance to settle his affairs, and no chance of turning things around, Lucky inadvertently resolves to compose the suicide note to end all suicide notes. More
Lucky Suarelius is running out of time. Out of options. Out of ideas.
Out of his mind.
Five years after being dumped by his publisher, he now finds himself trapped in Verona, North Carolina. Seven years spent behind the counter of a local sex shop. Girlfriend of eight years now moved on to greener pastures. Sixteen years of rampant alcoholism reaching its limit. Thirty-four years old without a single prospect for thirty-four more.
On his thirty-fifth birthday, he will lock himself in a New Orleans motel room, and swallow a bottle of pills with a vodka chaser.
But first, there is the small matter of his best friend’s wedding.
Armed with a rented tuxedo, carton of cigarettes and a bottle of Grey Goose, Lucky strikes out for Skytop, Pennsylvania. What awaits is a bizarre landscape of estranged friends, wild memories, dangerous fantasies, incestuous confessions, karaoke, keg stands, exquisite hallucinations, drinking games, dragonflies, indifferent bridesmaids, disgruntled locals, open bars, blackouts, fireworks, Chinese vibrators, maraschino cherries, benders, rock n’ rollers, endless failures, infinite bottles of red, and the lingering demons of an unsettled score...
...Someone should have clearly thought twice before making him a groomsman.
Joaquin Emiliano requests the honor of your presence for the surreal, often absurd and always outlandish dictation of Lucky’s final words, as he stumbles towards the end of all things, on this, the sacred occasion of a new beginning.
