The Search for The Unicorn
A dream of love through mental illness
by Esteban Powell

Thought-provoking and emotionally moving, The Search for the Unicorn is a memoir recounting the months before and after the tragic suicide of the author’s partner. The work integrates his thoughts with her writings to tell the brief yet profound and multifaceted story of their life together—during life and after death. Readers will move back and forth in time, watching the young couple fall in love in university while also observing the darkest lows of hospitalization. The two narratives aim to eclipse as a tragic yet hopeful ending, the dark within the light, and the light within the dark. It’s a journey of faith and an exploration of the tensions between mental forces and the forces of true love. In goodwill, the author hopes to open transparent conversations about the stigma of suicide and suicide loss by sharing his perspective of healing and clarity. All proceeds of the sales of this book will be donated to CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health).

Esteban Powell is committed to excelling in the various forms of craft in storytelling, particularly in the film medium through screenwriting. He has honed his writing skills inside and outside of the classroom in a dedicated manner, always learning and improving. The Search for the Unicorn is his first published book. Mr. Powell lives in Scarborough, Ontario with his father and sister and his beloved cat, Obi.
