Sherry Quan Lee
How To Write A Suicide Note

"How to Write a Suicide Note is a haunting portrait
of the daughter of an Black mother and a
Chinese father. Sherry dares to be who she isn't
supposed to be, feel what she isn't supposed to
feel, and destroys racial and gender myths as she
integrates her bi-racial identity into all that she is.
Through her raw honesty and vulnerability,
Sherry captures a range of emotions most people
are afraid to confront, or even share. Her work is
a gift to the mental health community."

—Beth Kyong Lo, M.A., Psychotherapist

"And after you finish this book you will say to yourself, if you have any sense at all, this woman is a hero. This book is a gift. This book is a small and powerful miracle. If you read it with an open mind and heart, it will tell you much about America; it will tell you truths that are not there in our culture of mass media or in our canonized literature."

—David Mura (from preface to CHINESE BLACKBIRD)
