A big congratulations to M.F. Alvarez on the sale of his groundbreaking book on the intersection between creativity and suicide, to Amy King at Lexington books! Here is a screenshot of the deal as announced on Publisher’s Marketplace:
The book draws on a decade of research and features some well-known creative and accomplished individuals who chose to end their life. The aim of the book is to humanize rather than reduce to mere labels, the lives of these creative individuals by examining more closely their life’s work and contributions to society at large. M.F. Alvarez, a 2014 Paul and Daisy Soros Fellow, recently spoke at the Out of Darkness Walk on March 29, 2015, and is passionate about reducing the stigma surrounding mental health and increasing awareness regarding suicide and suicide prevention. He is currently pursuing his doctoral studies at UMASS-Amherst. You can check out his website here: http://www.mfalvarez.net/ or follow him on Twitter @mfalvarez121. Congratulations again Mike!
