More About The Noonday Demon by Andrew Solomon
 
 
 
Overview
A Scribner Classics edition of Andrew Solomon's National Book Award-winning, bestselling, and transformative masterpiece on depression--"the book for a generation, elegantly written, meticulously researched, empathetic, and enlightening" (Time).

Winner of more than a dozen awards, The Noonday Demon "takes readers on a journey of incomparable range and resonance" (O, The Oprah Magazine), revealing the subtle complexities and sheer agony of depression. Andrew Solomon interviews patients, doctors and scientists, policy makers and politicians, drug designers and philosophers to describe the vast range of available medications, the efficacy of alternative treatments, and the impact the malady has on various demographic populations--around the world and throughout history. He also explores the thorny patch of moral and ethical questions posed by emerging biological explanations for mental illness.

With uncommon humanity, candor, wit, and erudition, The Noonday Demon "is a considerable accomplishment. It is likely to provoke discussion and controversy, and its generous assortment of voices, from the pathological to the philosophical, makes for rich, variegated reading" (The New York Times).
