About the Book:
Aaron Clifton, a social worker at the Suicide Prevention & Crisis Hotline Center, is tormented by the request to help his ailing grandmother kill herself.
A literary, psychological novel imbued with social commentary, Not Yet reflects on the depressive conditions that lead to suicide. This introspective, in-depth character study of a single father, who is utterly surrounded by women, details the emotional struggle of raising a teenage daughter while confronting the imminent demise of his grandmother slowly engulfed by Alzheimer’s. The dark theme of suicide is uplifted by musings on race, religion, history and feminism, and with humor occurring suddenly in the midst of dialogue-driven Socratic therapy. Not Yet offers a temporally-deconstructed glimpse of a man conflicted by the contemplation of assisting his grandmother in death.
