Jonathan Tropper’s latest novel, One Last Thing Before I Go, tells the story of Drew Silver, a middle-age divorcee whose life has eroded to such a degree that when he learns that he needs emergency, lifesaving surgery, he makes the radical decision to refuse the operation. He chooses instead to use what little time he has left to repair his relationship with his family, become a better man, and live in the moment, even if that moment isn’t destined to last very long.
Read the book and then come hear Jonathan speak at the 2012 Hyman S. & Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival at the Washington DCJCC on October 21 at 7 pm. He’ll be on a panel entitled Funny Because It’s True: A Panel on Humor and Fiction, along with novelist Lisa Zeidner and Devan Sipher. More information on the festival can be found here. Tickets go on sale September 1.
