“Imagine yourself alone on this planet. Would anything be the same?” Jennifer Michael Hecht is a poet, philosopher, and historian who wants to change the way we talk to ourselves and each other about suicide and staying alive — starting with her insistence that we believe each other into being. “Sometimes when you can’t see what’s important about you, other people can.”

Jennifer Michael Hecht is the author of "Stay: A History of Suicide and the Philosophies Against It," "Doubt: A History," and "Who Said."
