Pressestimmen

"On Suicide seeks to explore the state of mind those who are suicidal. It moves beyond the science to plumb the depths and explore the contradictions of the person facing such angst... The closed and dark is seen from within and for that it is immensely moving and fascinating."--The Expository Times, May, 2000 "On Suicide seeks to explore the state of mind those who are suicidal.
