The Book

In truth there is light.



Albert Camus argued that the only important question was, ‘Should I kill myself?' What would it mean to interrogate this question in earnest instead of shrugging it off? Can we make a persuasive case for living?



In this heartbreaking, unflinching memoir, Martin weaves the science and philosophy of the suicidal mind in with his own dark story.
