A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

A Long Way Down - Nick Hornby

An interesting story about four people who meet after they try to kill themselves by jumping from the same building. They become a "gang" and manage to keep from committing suicide, even if they don't come to realize their faults or problems as clearly as they could. An odd story but pretty good.
