    Elf and Yoli are two smart, loving sisters.

    Elf is a world-renowned pianist, glamorous, wealthy, happily married: she wants to die.

    Yoli is divorced, broke, sleeping with the wrong men: she desperately wants to keep her older sister alive.

    When Elf's latest suicide attempt leaves her hospitalised weeks before her highly anticipated world tour, Yoli is forced to confront the impossible question of whether it is better to let a loved one go.

    'The novel she has written - so exquisitely that you'll want to savour every word - reads as if it has been wrenched from her heart.' - Sunday Times

    'A masterly book of such precise dignity. It is, also against all the odds, at times a desperately humorous novel.' - Daily Mail

    'A heartbreaking and hilariously funny story about a woman who struggles to keep her beautiful, talented and annihilatingly depressed sister alive.' - Adelaide Advertiser
