Unholy Ghost: Writers On Depression

type
  • Book

One of the 22 writers featured in this collection offers the invitation ”Welcome to my insanity.” In fact, the essays in Holy Ghost address depression with notable sanity and stylistic elegance, exploring the debilitating conditions that fall under the depression umbrella more strongly than any single memoir could. The many accounts of unmitigated sadness, self-criticism, and despair (”I didn’t believe I deserved a life of my own,” says novelist Darcey Steinke) create a group portrait in which both newcomers and heavy hitters (from Susanna Kaysen to William Styron) have something trenchant to offer.
