Birthday Literary Suicide Tour

So I walk on towards deaths (plural) in the cooling twilight

In probably his frankest video since Sad Man On A Beach, Scott Manley Hadley​ visits the death sites of Malcolm Lowry, Virginia Woolf, Ann Quin and BS Johnson on a single day, his 29th birthday, reflecting on his personal mental health in perhaps unnecessary detail. Filmed in September but held back until he had a second opinion on whether this was watchable or not. Got external approval (drunken, admittedly), so here it comes.

NB, I may have misquoted Johnson’s suicide note, but I had no way to check and I have no idea where my copy of Like A Fiery Elephant is right now, so I can’t. Also sorry for not maintaining the third person.
