Suicide should never be taken lightly. According to the latest research, it is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and has caused immeasurable pain and suffering to families around the world.
But what about those who have contemplated suicide and lived to talk about it?
What can we learn from those who have looked so directly into the face of death that they discovered something about life?
In her debut novel, The Little Black Book of Suicide Notes, Adele Paula Royce presents a semi-fictional look inside the mind and heart of a tortured soul who is on the verge of ending her own life. Through this raw and authentic journey into the heart of darkness, Adele shines a unique light on the human experience that leaves you more inspired to live life to the fullest.
Even if you've never considered suicide yourself (though research suggests that most people have at some point in their life), you'll find resonance with her story.
Each note takes you deeper down the rabbit hole, and conveys a kind of philosophical bravery that comes from facing your own demise. By the end, you'll find yourself looking at life in a new, and surprisingly optimistic way.
Coming back to life in a new way
One part suicide journal and one part spiritual memoir, Adele's novel is really a tale of life, death, and rebirth. She draws upon her own rich history of spiritual practice and inquiry to look at suicide from the deepest possible level.
In doing so, she uses her character to show us how to live by showing us first how not to live. And by going into the deepest darkness, she finds a different kind of light at the end of the tunnel than she expected.
A unique listening experience
