5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
I was just totally spellbound. This novel has everything you could want from a piece of fiction - color, pace, beauty, and a fantastic (unique?) use of language which reminded me of Nabokov and Bellow. The portrait of the tragedies that unfold within the family is just incredible. I really recommend this.

Editorial Review

*****
The Eclipse: A Memoir of Suicide is an astonishing account of one woman's experience of love and loss. Gambotto's insight and compassion are startling; her ability to make sense of suicide, revolutionary. Does any man have the right to dispose of his own life? This is, she writes, the ultimate debate of moral entitlement. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A MASTERPIECE!
This beautiful book was surprising in so many ways. How can something so brutal in its honesty about suicidal urges and bereavement be so comforting? "Death is not the opposite of life; the opposite of death is birth," she writes. "Life has no opposite. It is a constant, like the universe. Suicide solves nothing." Amazing stuff.

James was born in Sydney, Australia. He was allowed to change his name as a child because "after Vivien Leigh played Scarlett O'Hara the name became irrevocably a girl's name no matter how you spelled it". His father was taken prisoner by the Japanese during the Second World War, and although he survived the POW camp, he died when the plane returning him to Australia crashed in Taiwan, and he was buried in Hong Kong.
