Publisher's Summary

A work of great personal courage and a literary tour de force, this best seller is William Styron's true account of his descent into a crippling and almost suicidal depression. Styron is perhaps the first writer to convey the full terror of depression's psychic landscape as well as the illuminating path to recovery.

words for an unspeakable affliction<br />

This book received a great deal of press when it first was published. We are often drawn to the breaking of taboos, of which psychiatric disease is one. Mr. Styron's tone of voice, which I first found dry and boring, allows his subject and his prose to reveal itself without any embellishment. He avoids hyperbole; this seems to make his experience and analysis more profound. in breaking the taboo of mental illness, it is possible that he has saved more than one person, directly or indirectly, from self-harm.

Changed my whole outlook completely on depression!

I used to judge somewhat internally those whole would commit suicide due to depression. This book changed my whole outlook on what depression really is or can become.
