9780704380080: Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir

'Sylvia Plath with the ego of Madonna' NY Times Book Review '...a book with the same relevance and resonance as On the Road, Catch 22 and Generation X' NME 'A brilliant feminist writer' Julie Birchill Prozac Nation is a collective cry for help which is both harrowing and hilarious. It gives voice to the high incidence of depression amongst young people who are fully entrenched in the culture of divorce, economic instability and AIDS. Writing with a vengeance, Elizabeth Wurtzel will not go gentle into that good night. She wants off medication; she wants a family and most definitely a life worth living.

Review:

Elizabeth Wurtzel writes with her finger in the faint pulse of a generation whose ruling icons are Kurt Cobain, Xanax, and pierced tongues. A memoir of her bouts with depression and skirmishes with drugs, Prozac Nation still manages to be a witty and sharp account of the psychopharmacology of an era.

Elizabeth Wurtzel is the author of bestselling books including Prozac Nation, Bitch, and More, Now, Again. A Harvard and Yale Law School graduate whose work has appeared in such publications as The New Yorker, New York, The Guardian, and The Oxford American, she lives in New York City.
