Call in to speak with the host
SUICIDE statistics have risen sharply in the United States over the last ten years, and yet it still remains a forbidden topic to speak about.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention published findings this month that indicate more people now die of suicide then of car accidents.
Why are we as a society reluctant to bring the subject out of the shadow of shame and into the light of healing?
HOST KATHY BARRETT interviews renowned Argentinian author MARTA MERAJVER-KURLAT about her book "JUST TOSS THE ASHES," a story about a successful lawyer who commits suicide and her son's journey to understand why. "Just Toss The Ashes," portrays the emotional impact that suicide has on the people left behind.
MARTA MERAJVER-KURLAT is an Argentine novelist, translator, essayist, and biographer. Her attraction to the ways in which mankind tells its own history encouraged her to undertake studies in myth, language, literature, psychology, and psychoanalysis. Accordingly, her novels Just Toss the Ashes, Los gloriosos sesenta y después, and El tramo final delve into intriguing aspects of human nature. She currently holds a permanent seminar on Tragedy and is a guest lecturer at APA (Asociación Psicoanalítica Argentina) and EFBA (Escuela Freudiana de Buenos Aires).
