About the Book
Why is he doing this; what else provoked him? Jake provides no answers if he is willing to remain alive for his family members and close-associations. He left no goodbye note. The unfortunate guy realizes he can take advantage of the potential family life with a close-bonding, female companion. And, of course, Jake put forth little effort, if any, finding the necessary counsel and treatment to cope with his constant, emotional health complications.
In this sensitive drama, a Suffolk County, New York artist and writer pictures a troubling mental state with vivid expressions, striking photography, drawings, and mindful, soul-searching art. The graphic novella contains over 80 images.
The author employed local Long Island photography as a seeing, tactile ingredient for the narrative along with the array of ardent and concerning expressions. You may experience yourself present with Jake feeling the south shore, seasonal air. Or maybe, it is the psychological sense of the tremors of his deep, unstable condition, the surge of Jake's fatalistic urge to quiet it under the ocean depths.
The book was revised and reprinted for conscientious and compositional corrections. First published in late 2019, it draws attention to the grim tragedy of suicide, reaping a global average of one death per 40 seconds. Almost eight-hundred thousand victims worldwide lose their lives to self-destruction each year.
Jake is not just a number in a statistic; he is an individual having social connections bounding to be emotionally wounding after his sober exit. The story is a profound rendition of man countering painful setbacks and disappointments against the odds of recovery. It is a life-memorable read.
