Synopsis : Suicide is the third biggest killer of young people in the Western world, and in the closing decade of the 20th century it reached epidemic proportions. This is an analysis of the phenomenon of young suicide, written by a survivor of a suicide attempt. Using scientific exploration, case-studies and clinical research this book tries to understand why suicide is so prevalent in societies which seem to have everything.
Critique: 'It stands alone in the literature of manic-depression for its bravery, brilliance and beauty' Oliver Sacks 'Night Falls Fast is the first major survey of suicide in 25 years... Jamison has a rare and unerring ability to straddle two worlds; she thinks like a scientist and writes like a novelist. Her prose is clear and exact but also profoundly moving... This is a lyrical, beautifully argued, deep and deeply troubling book and in all respects but one an easy read' Evening Standard
