Ned Vizzini, television writer and author of the novel It’s Kind of a Funny Story, committed suicide in Brooklyn, according to People.com. He was 32.

“Ned was bending over backwards to make me feel sympathetic for this actor who’d dismissed Ned’s script as a piece of shit, and I frowned. ‘Ned,’ I said firmly, ‘You are absolutely ruining this good gossip right now.’ But that wasn’t what it was. I realized later that Ned simply couldn’t tell a story without rendering a character in three dimensions.” — from “Remembering Ned Vizzini, the Great Storyteller,” by Kyle Buchanan.
