This powerful and sometimes harrowing book is an inquest into the mystery of the suicide of the author's mother, as well as an account of suicide's effect on its survivors--especially children. "Beautifully told . . . a sobering, eloquent account . . . honest and courageous".--San Francisco Chronicle.
