About the book: 

Popular columnist Helen Walne tells of her tortuous relationship with her brother, Richard, who couldn't resist the lure of death. Beautifully told, it is an achingly personal account of the inner turmoil of those who are left behind after a loved one's suicide, and of dealing with grief, fear, isolation and depression. But it also tells of hope, recovery and learning to live without the person who has left them.

The Diving demystifies the taboos surrounding a topic that little is spoken, let alone written, about. This moving, sometimes amusing book is the story of letting go of the hand wilfully sliding beneath the surface.
