This is a Autobiography,
one night when Signe Hammer was nine years old, her mother tucked her into bed, hugged her long and hard, and then went downstairs to the kitchen, where she lay down before the oven, turned on the gas and calmly waited to die. This powerful and sometimes harrowing book is an inquiry into the mystery of Agnes Hammer's death. It is also an account of suicide's effect on it's survivors.
