Annotation:
Generation X meets Sylvia Plath in Wurtzel's memoir of her prolonged battle with crippling recurrences of clinical depression. Wurtzel's struggle began at age 12 when she began cutting her legs in the school bathroom. After a series of breakdowns, suicide attempts, and hospitalizations, she was finally given Prozac in combination with other psychoactive drugs, all of which have only worked sporadically, but to which she credits her recovery.
Author Bio
Elizabeth Wurtzel
A graduate of Harvard College, Wurtzel received the 1986 "Rolling Stone" College Journalism Award for essay writing. She was the popular music critic for "The New Yorker" and "New York" magazine. Her articles have appeared in "Mademoiselle", "Mirabella", "Seventeen", and "The Oxford American".

Praise

New York Times
"Wrenching and comical, self-indulgent and self-aware, Prozac Nation possesses the raw candor of Joan Didion's essays, the irritating emotional exhibitionism of Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, and the wry, dark humor of a Bob Dylan song."

San Francisco Bay Guardian
"A very important book, particularly to the countless number of people who aren't sure what's wrong with them but are suffering from the negative thinking, erratic behavior, and dark moods associated with clinical depression. A powerful self-portrait...well worth reading."
