Book I Recommend - The Reason You're Alive
The Reason You're Alive by Matthew Quick

Very blunt, funny and not my typical read but was really good. :)

What’s it about?? Is it fiction? Blunt and funny sounds perfect right now.

It is fiction. Mainly about a Vietnam vet, who doesn't have a very good relationship with his son and his wife committed suicide. Oh you really have to read it to 'get it'. I tried to explain it to my niece and one of the 1st things I mentioned was a vet who's racist but his best friends are homosexuals, blacks, etc. She said there's no way it can be funny then. But it is. :o
The end of the book is wonderful as well, his relationship with his ds changes dramatically, has a great ending.
A ton of 'f' this and 'f' that. But if you can see beyond the language and racist comments, I bet you'd like it.
