Suicide in Creative Women
This book traces suicide in creative women. Stress, alcohol, and life's traps ensnared these women. But why especially the creative ones? The Director of the Suicide Centre discusses the lives and suicides of Dora Carrington, Kathe Kallwitz, Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Parker, Sara Teasdale, and others. He compares them with creative men who committed suicide and with creative women who did not.
