Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir by Elizabeth Wurtzel
'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.
