According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, in our lifetimes 80 percent of us will have some up-close experience with the suicide of someone we know. And more than 20 percent of us will have a family member die by suicide. Journalist Eric Marcus knows this better than most people. In 1970, his father took his life at the age of 44. In 2008, his 49-year-old sister-in-law took her life as well. In a completely revised and updated edition of the landmark original Why Suicide ?, Eric Marcus offers thoughtful answers to scores of questions about this complex, painful issue, from how to recognize the signs of someone who is suicidal to strategies for coping in the aftermath of a loved one's death. No matter what the circumstances, those of us who are affected by suicide are left with difficult and disturbing questions: Why did they do it? Was it my fault? What should I tell people when they ask what happened? Is someone who attempts suicide likely to try again? What should I do if I'm thinking of killing myself? Drawing from his own experience, as well as interviews with people who have been touched by suicide, Eric Marcus cuts through the veil of silence and misunderstanding to bring clarity, reassurance, and comfort to those who so desperately need it.

„Am 20. April 1999 betraten Dylan Klebold und Eric Harris ausgerüstet mit Gewehren und Sprengstoff die Columbine Highschool. Dort töteten sie zwölf Schüler und einen Lehrer, verletzten vierundzwanzig weitere Menschen und nahmen sich dann selbst das Leben. Es war der schlimmste Schul-Amoklauf der Geschichte. Dylan Klebold war mein Sohn.“ 16 Jahre nach dem Amoklauf ihres Sohnes Dylan erzählt Sue Klebold von ihrem Ringen mit der Frage, ob sie die Tat hätte verhindern können, wenn sie nur aufmerksamer, liebevoller gewesen wäre. Sue Klebold ist durch die Hölle gegangen, aber an der Tat ihres Sohnes nicht zerbrochen. Sie hat einen Weg gefunden weiterzuleben und hofft, anderen Eltern zu helfen, das zu verhindern, was sie selbst nicht aufhalten konnte. Von einem ist sie fest überzeugt: Elterliche Liebe allein reicht nicht aus, um Kinder und Jugendliche vor den Folgen unerkannter psychischer Erkrankungen zu schützen. Ein starkes Memoir einer Mutter, der das Unvorstellbare passiert ist. Sue Klebold spendet alle Einnahmen an Forschung und Hilfsorganisationen für Opfer und Angehörige psychisch Kranker.

Praise for The Unique Grief of Suicide: Questions and Hope "A gem of a book. Tom Smith is one of those unique human beings who, through a labor of love and generosity, is able to turn a personal tragedy into an opportunity to reach out and help many others. His work combines scientific data and personal feelings admirably." --Luis A. Giuffra, MD, PhD; professor of clinical psychiatry, Washington University School of Medicine "Very painful questions arise following the death by suicide of a loved one. Tom Smith's moving book identifies and organizes these questions--a very helpful thing in itself. But more, the book provides answers and also acknowledges that some questions do not have easy answers, reflecting accurately and sympathetically the experiences of those bereaved by suicide." --Thomas Joiner, PhD, author of Why People Die by Suicide and the Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Florida State University With warmth and understanding, Tom Smith draws on his own grief following the suicide of his twenty-six-year-old daughter, Karla, and provides helpful resources and coping strategies to those grieving a suicide. Both practical and comforting, The Unique Grief of Suicide guides and educates those dealing with the different facets of suicide and offers a safe harbor within the storm of grief.
