‘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.
