Bold, dark, profoundly upsetting, but with a vein of deep tenderness running through. This is the story of Dorotea Giglio, who at 25 years of age decides with apparently cold detachment to end a life plagued by genetically imprinted, devastating depression. A biology student, she recounts in minute scientific detail what exactly happens to her body, the change and decay of tissues and bones. And delves into her own history and her family's, in the attempt to unravel the knots of her broken existence, to give, and gain, a measure of peace.
