We're never quite sure what made Chloé take a flight to an unnamed country in South America. There she lives in self-imposed exile following a suicide attempt. This series of short vignettes provides a glimpse of Chloé's scattered thoughts as she attempts to adjust to life in a new setting and recover from her depressive episode. Amidst the quirky observational humor of her internal monologue, a story of loneliness emerges as she tries (for the most part unsuccessfully) to form meaningful connections with the people she meets--and does her best to avoid--in her new surroundings. At times biting and sarcastic, at times beautiful and reflective, this debut novel takes an intimate look at depression, with a sharp and witty narrator who rides the line between self-aware and self-deprecating.
