Review of Arjuna Ardagh’s “The Last Laugh”

“I stood on the bridge just before midnight, the wind from the ocean arriving in violent blasts, as if saying under its breath, ‘Jump, motherf***er, jump.’  This was the last of a string of attempted departures, most orchestrated in my tired mind.  Always a bitter reminder of all that had been lost and destroyed by my foolishness.”

This is a story of Matt Thomson, who is going through an emotional struggle after a bad mistake costs him his marriage, his kids, his job, his money, and his home.  As I read through the beginning of the book, my heart broke for Matt because he felt so alone and didn’t know what else he could do.

Of course, I don’t want to give away too much.  However, I will say that Matt’s wife is furious with him and his father-in-law is, pretty much, trying to turn the kids against Matt.

Matt’s life changes, though, when he meets a man, named Joey Murphy, who becomes his teacher and mentor.  Joey leads Matt on a ten-day quest to help him discover his own pros and cons and to help him get back on his feet again.

This is a recommended read for all.  The story had many emotional moments and, of course, there was some humor and quirkiness to it.  The book can be found here.
