Anthology of Suicide Notes is Holiday Bestseller in Germany
Ich möchte jetzt schließen, or Let Me Finish, has apparently struck a chord with the German public. The morbid anthology opens the curtain on the ultimate private moment by publshing a selection of suicide notes.
The Times of London reports on the phenomenon of this unlikely bestseller, which has opened up a dialogue about a subject long supressed in Germany. "Berlin’s suicide cemetery is hidden in the Grunewald Forest, full of chambermaids who killed themselves after being made pregnant by their employers," writes Roger Boyes.
