** A Cure for Suicide by Jesse Ball


I did not love A Cure for Suicide but I want to encourage readers looking for something very different to read it. It stars a mysterious examiner and her claimant, one in charge of reprogramming the other in a mysterious totalitarian environment, brilliantly depicted in its oppressive closeness. The story sags midway through into a more ordinary, 1984-like, treatment. I preferred the first half.
