Synopsis

Today is Leonard Peacock's birthday. This birthday, he has decided, will be different. Alone, as ever, in his house, he wraps five presents: four are for the people who matter most to him, and one is for himself - a gun. He plans to kill his former best friend, and then himself, but first he will say goodbye four times, in his own unique and special way. As he delivers each of his presents, more of his story is revealed: a story as heart-breaking as it is powerful.In Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, Matthew Quick asks poignant questions about loneliness and friendship, and how society can so utterly forget its neediest citizens. Ultimately, though, this is a story about hope, and how just a glimmer of something more can make the world of difference.
