From the author of the critically-acclaimed debut People
Who Knew Me comes the story of one manís determination
to abandon his will to live.
Jonathan Krause is a man with a plan. He is going to quit
his advertising job and, when his money runs out, he is
going to die. He just has one final mission: A trip to
Japan. Itís a trip he was supposed to take with his
girlfriend, Sara. Itís a trip inspired by his regrets. And
itís a trip to pay homage to the Japanese, the inventors of
his chosen suicide technique.
In preparation for his final voyage, Jonathan enrolls in a
Japanese language class where he meets Riko, who has her own
plans to visit her homeland, for very different reasons.
Their unexpected and unusual friendship takes them to Japan
together, where they each struggle to make peace with their
past and accept that happiness, loneliness, and grief come
and goójust like the cherry blossoms.
Haunted by lost love, Jonathan must decide if he can embrace
the transient nature of life, or if he must choose the
certainty of death.
