In this very frank and straightforward podcast, Christopher Lukas, author of Blue Genes: A Memoir of Loss and Survival, discusses his family’s ravaging history of mental illness and suicide. His mother’s suicide when he was six years old left him and his Pulitzer Prize-winning brother, Tony, on a lifelong quest to understand, and overcome, a staggering sense of abandonment. Tony’s quest ended with his own suicide; Christopher’s eventually led him to experience healing and, as he says, salvation through the process of writing Blue Genes. Emmy Award-winning Christopher Lukas has worked as a writer-producer-director in public and commercial television. He has two grown daughters and continues to make films, write books, and work as a film and stage actor. Please Note: This podcast very openly discusses suicide but also the healing the author reached through his book. However, if you feel that the podcast could be a trigger for you, please speak to your mental health professional about your concerns before listening.
