Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every year, around one million people commit suicide, yet, for most of us, it remains an extremely taboo subject. Udo Grashoff has discovered forty-five suicide letters that offer us unique insight into this phenomenon. The authors of each letter differ in age, sex, and class, but all cite strikingly universal reasons for their decision — unrequited love, mounting debts, the loss of a spouse, a frustrating domestic situation. These are problems that we may all encounter. So why is it that only some of us see suicide as the solution? A truly remarkable and thought-provoking anthology, "Let Me Finish" marks the beginning of a more widespread frankness about suicide and take us closer to answering the seemingly unanswerable question: "Why?"

About the Author

Udo Grashoff is both a biochemistry and history graduate who now works as a print and radio journalist with a particular interest in medical history. He first discovered the letters compiled in Let Me Finish through academic research and has lectured widely on the subject of suicide.
