"Tropper's characters are likably zany and fallible, and perhaps more important, funny. One Last Thing Before I Go is a poignant story about facing death and celebrating life, even when things seem well beyond repair." --Newsweek/The Daily Beast
"The richly talented Tropper (This Is Where I Leave You) has created an acerbic, middle-aged lost soul who will ultimately illuminate the reasons we stick around on this lopsided planet despite significant temptation to let it go. Readers will love Silver and want to throttle him in equal measure. Eminently quotable, hilariously funny, and emotionally draining, this arresting tour de force will entertain well after the book is done." -Library Journal (starred review) ..".a bristling, witty tale of woe that'll make you appreciate whatever good things, no matter how few, have come your way." -Entertainment Weekly on One Last Thing Before I Go"Tropper entertainingly examines the angst of middle-age masculinity." - Kirkus "Tropper is a master of the mid-life male coming-of-age story, and his latest is full of the charm and wit his readers cherish." - Booklist

Drew Silver's life hasn't quite turned out the way he expected. He's divorced, plays in a wedding band despite onetime musical stardom, and-to top it off-he's got a pregnant teenage daughter. But rather than try to solve all of his problems, Silver opts to live the rest of his life to the absolute fullest and make peace with himself. John Shea, who delivers an understated reading that perfectly captures the heart of Trooper's tale, skillfully narrates this heartbreaking and emotional journey. Shea's Silver is resolute yet fragile. His narration is simple and straightforward, but also demonstrates the narrator's ability to modulate his voice to capture a variety of emotions.
