The Noonday Demon
The Noonday Demon
An Atlas of Depression
Andrew Solomon

Through a lens both scholarly and literary – and deeply personal – Solomon deconstructs how our culture thinks of mental illness, and investigates how the stigma and entrenched associations surrounding depression keep us from addressing the real needs of those who suffer from it. Part cultural history, part biography, part journalistic look at the pharmaceutical industry, and part investigation of America's health care system, The Noonday Demon is an exceptional look at a problem largely ignored. – Recommended by Eric Z., City Lights Books
