Can we hope to succeed our own deaths when our own lives have been ruined?
"Cul de sac" is a story about a man who tries to end his life unsuccessfully. Unhappy father of a draining family, he has no control whatsoever over his life. Paul doesn't see any other way but to commit suicide. All the suicide attempts comically bump up against the demands of each family member. He also loses control of his own death. Wishing to free himself more firmly, he locks himself into dependance and a lack of power.
