SUICIDE IS PAINLESS
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.
27 REFLECTIONS ON LIFE’S BIGGEST QUESTION
“There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide.” —Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus
Adele’s “little black book” doesn’t contain notes left behind by someone who has killed themself. It is composed of 27 contemplations by someone who is bravely attempting to answer the question “Is life worth living?”, such as:
- One Is A Lonely Number
- Saying Goodbye on the Road to Demise
- Stop the World, I Want to Get Off
- Choose Life. It Will Kill You Before Death Does
- Why Is There No Answer to A Why Question?
- The 10 Commandments of Suicide
- A Final Farewell
Even if you’ve never considered suicide yourself (though research suggest 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
“Adele’s book is a hidden manual of spiritual practice wherein she shows us how not to live so that we may bring ourselves back to life from the brink of death.” —Dr. Gerald Epstein, author of Healing Visualizations
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.
