Summary
"A study of the phenomenon of suicide, both actual and spiritual, in the major fictional works of Fyodor Dostoevsky and Walker Percy, drawing lines of continuity between the two authors and noting their differences. In the epilogue, Desmond offers a Christian counter-vision to the 'suicidal' ethos he has documented"--
