A voyeuristic look at some of the most shocking and spectacular suicides of modern times by celebrities or those who achieved notoriety by the sheer nature, scale or political repercussions of their fatal actions. From singers Kurt Cobain and Ian Curtis, to writer Ernest Hemingway, artists Pierre Molinier and Mark Rothko, serial killer Fred West, Adolf Hitler and Yukio Mishima, this is an illustrated catalogue of self-inflicted death. Heavily illustrated with often disturbing images of human carnage, Straight to Hell is a unique exploration of some of the most shocking, scandalous, and bizarre acts of self-annihilation in recent times.
