New novel examines the psychology of suicide.


'The All Souls' Waiting Room' by Paki S. Wright tells the story of Johnnine Hapgood and her thoughts of suicide.

Wright's story elaborates on the academic notions of trauma and personality crisis. Johnnine suffers damage from being raised according to the unconventional ideas of Wilhelm Reich, a Freudian follower whose radical thinking is still controversial. After a suicide attempt Johnnine meets the dead psychoanalysts Jung, Reich and Freud in a limbo-like realm.

'The All Souls' Waiting Room' is published by 1stBooks Library and is available now.
