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, a drug-and alcohol-induced search for pleasure that ends in vain. In this book, Rolling Stone magazine's journalist Elizabeth Wurtzel exposes the horrors of her own existence. Nacion Prozac 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.
