“Wonderful experience from start to finish. My work remained mine through the entire process, and the finished product was incredibly impressive. Elaine, Jerry, Jackie, and Rebecca worked endlessly to see this project matched what I had in my mind from day one. Definitely going to be publishing through Outskirts again; Best in the industry.”

James Finster studied literature at California State University San Marcos. He resides in Flagstaff, Arizona, with his wife Jerusha and his two daughters, Vivian and Reagan.

My father chose to end his own life. That is the elephant in my room…So begins The Reverent Surrender, James Finster’s deeply touching memoir about his father’s suicide. It’s a brutally honest perspective, but it’s also refreshing, skillfully avoiding an angry, self-pitying position on this painful and often taboo subject. Everyone dies, it’s a truism in this life, yet many choose to go on their own terms. Is there not some form of honor to be found within this selfish act? When he first set out to write his memoir, Finster’s goal was to help others who’d experienced the same heartbreak, but as the book evolved, he realized that everyone faces death with a different perspective, and each person’s response to suicide-and their grieving process-is unique. Ultimately, this beautifully written book is dedicated to the memory of his father. It encourages the survivors of suicide to reflect on the life lost and embrace their loved one’s memories-while learning to let go of anger or blame and ultimately changing the underlying core of grief to one of acceptance…and healing. My father’s time on this earth was but mere seconds in the scheme of the world. A small pivotal role played out on a stage for a select few. His life encompassed comedy, romance, satire, and tragedy. And therefore as my reflection ends and the curtains set on that stage, I shall rise from my seat, applaud vigorously, and shout “encore.”

– James W. Finster, author of The Reverent Surrender
