Another book from the Tournament of Books shortlist, All This Could Be Yours is the story of a patriarch who is not a good person. When he suffers a heart event and is dying in the hospital, the story unfolds through the various people coming to say goodbye.

In a weird complete accident, I read this in the airport and on the plane on the way to say goodbye to my father-in-law, who was in hospice at that point. While our patriarch is a nicer person, there are still just as many complexities when all the people come together. One thing Jami gets right is that rather than being on their best behavior, death tends to make everyone even more themselves.
