It is with great sadness that we report the passing of author Ned Vizzini, who committed suicide in Brooklyn on December 19th.  Our thoughts are with his friends and family.

Below, in its entirety, is his December 2012 interview with Brad Listi on the Other People podcast, which Ned called the most candid he’d ever done.  If you would like to learn more about his life and work, please visit his website.

    Thanks for this, seems a strange time, I have a number of people who have committed suicide or want to….. This was just a very honest picture of what it is to be an artist, thanks for doing this work….There are real reason why people feel crazy and how we are each made to feel it is us instead of what our society has created for us….
