Synopsis: Each day Elizabeth woke up knowing that she would constantly writhe in pain and anguish. Trying to fill a void in her life, she turns sex into a desperate act, an obsessive love destined to fail, in a drug- and alcohol-induced search for pleasure that ends in vain. There was only one way out of Elizabeth's hell: Prozac, the medicine that symbolized the panacea of the 1990s. Thanks to Prozac, many people recovered their joy for life, but its use became very polemic. In this book, Rolling Stone magazine's journalist Elizabeth Wurtzel exposes the horrors of her own existence. Prozac Nation transcends the autobiographical narrative to become a generational report that tells us about young men and women who have reached maturity immersed in the culture of divorce, financial economic instability and AIDS.

Blurb in Spanish: Elizabeth despertaba a diario sabiendo que cada hora traería un vendaval de dolor y angustia. Por eso convirtió el sexo en un acto desesperado con que conjurar el vacío, el amor en una obsesión abocada al fracaso y las drogas y el alcohol en una búsqueda vana de placer. La puerta de salida del infierno de Elizabeth tenía un nombre: Prozac, el fármaco que simbolizó la panacea en los años 90. Merced a esa sustancia, muchas personas recuperaron el deseo de vivir, pero su uso se tornó muy polémico.

Elizabeth Wurtzel, periodista de la revista Rolling Stone, expone aquí el horror de su propia existencia. Pero Nación Prozac supera el relato autobiográfico para convertirse en un informe generacional que nos habla de hombres y mujeres jóvenes que han alcanzado la madurez inmersos en la cultura del divorcio, la inestabilidad económica y el sida.

"Si quieren saber qué quiso expresar Kurt Cobain con lo que hizo, qué se siente al ser joven, tener talento y sufrir una depresión, este libro es la respuesta." Daphne Merkin
