Writing[]

Bialosky's memoir of her sister Kim's 1990 suicide, A History of a Suicide: My sister's unfinished life, was published in 2011. Insightful and maturely crafted, the memoir probes "the possibility of a genetic susceptibility to suicide, and examines the question of how any young person can really know he or she wants to die"[3]
