The Wit of the Staircase, Remembering Theresa Duncan

Eerily enough, Theresa Duncan posted this blog entry about ten authors who killed themselves almost two years before her death.


I am still endlessly fascinated by Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake, may they both rest in peace.

Why is it eerie? It wasn't an unscheduled departure.

I suppose it would be better to say that her suicide is more eerie than her post about suicidal authors, however it's apparent via Wit of the Staircase that the woman was fond of death. Yet - do you think that two years prior she was aware of the fact that she would be taking her own life, much like the authors she wrote about? It's a small coincidence. All in all, I'm incredibly intrigued by the deceased couple.
