Publisher's Summary

When Margaret's fiancé, John, is hospitalized for depression, she faces a choice: carry on with their plans or leave. She decides to marry him. This is the story of what unfolds from this act of love and faith, when their three children help their mother to care for Michael.
Told in alternating points of view by all five members of the family, this searing, gut-wrenching and yet frequently hilarious novel brings alive with remarkable poignancy the depth of family love.

What the Critics Say

"Imagine Me Gone is a beautiful, elegant, harrowing story of the dissonant music of family, a poignant book that makes you eager, once more, for the complications of the world." (Colum McCann)
"Imagine Me Gone is literature of the highest order. It manages to be both dreadfully sad and hilariously funny all at once. It is luminous with love." (Peter Carey, Man Booker Prize winner for History of the Kelly Gang)

Wonderful

This is a wonderful story. It is deeply moving and tragic, but also ultimately inspirational. A couple more voice artists would have been welcome though to bring all the characters to life.
