Summary
Evan is a professional author of suicide notes. He meets with his clients, gets a sense of what they want, then asks them to keep a journal of their thoughts for a few weeks. Then Evan produces a poetic, client-customized suicide note. When Evan attends the funeral of a client, his sister Charlotte follows him out of the service and asks him if he was a friend of her brother's. Evan lies, stating that he went to Cornell with him. Soon he and Charlotte are dating. Trouble ensues when Evan eats dinner at Charlotte's house with the whole surviving family firing questions at him. Meanwhile, Evan's newest client, Abel, is an acerbic misanthrope who has a death wish. The two develop an unlikely bond. There are some extremely touching exchanges between the two as they work on Abel's farewell. Things get complicated between Evan and Charlotte since he has to go to increasingly absurd lengths to conceal his true occupation and the real reason that he knew her brother
