’I’ve tried so hard to forget that my father killed himself, that I don’t remember when he killed himself…?’

Leslie Ronald Morley killed himself in May 1976, or June 1977. Or July 1978. His suicide shattered the family he left behind — his wife, two teenage daughters and his son. Who was 18 or 19. Or 20. With idiosyncratic genius, Paul Morley investigates the reality and consequences of his father’s suicide, a suicide which over the years has been converted through family grief and denial into something unreal, even surreal.
