Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

Book Beginning:

Depending on who – sorry, whom – you ask, I may have killed my three best friends.

Page 56:

Nana Betsy chuckles softly but still exudes melancholy. “I wish I’d held on to every moment with him the way a drowning person holds a life preserver.”
For a time, we rummage through the drawers of our memories, pulling out the stories that are brightest and sharpest, like knives, and setting them in a row. Rekindling fires that had burned to embers. And then we are silent and still because merely listening to ourselves breathe feels like a holy rite in Death’s halls.

Have you read Goodbye Days or is it on your TBR? If you’ve read it please let me know what you think in the comments (no spoilers please)! Have you read Jeff Zentner’s debut novel, the Serpent King?
