Today millions of people take Prozac, but Lauren Slater was one of the first. In this rich and beautifully written book, she describes what it's like to spend most of your life feeling crazy -- and to wake up one day and find yourself in the strange state of feeling well. And then to face the challenge of creating a whole new real life. "The beauty of Lauren Slater's prose is shocking", said Newsday about Welcome to My Country, and Slater's remarkable gifts as a writer are present here in sentences that are elegant darts, hitting at the center of the deepest human feelings. Prozac Diary is a wonderfully written report from inside a decade on Prozac, and an original writer's acute observations on the challenges of living modern life.
