Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A memoir based on the ancient concept of "soul weariness" explores the phenomenon's relevance in modern culture, meditating on the ways in which depression-like acedia influenced the author's experiences as a writer, a family member, and a patient. 150,000 first printing.


Review:

"Filled with gorgeous prose, generous quotations from Christian thinkers across the centuries and fascinating etymological detours, this discomfiting book provides not just spiritual hope but a much-needed kick in the rear."

Publishers Weekly, 06/09/2008

Review:

"[Norris] challenges her readers to be self-aware, conscious of their behavior and of how it both reveals and affects their souls."

Kathryn Harrison, New York Times Book Review, 12/21/2008
