"Si quieren saber qué quiso expresar Kurt Cobain con lo que hizo, qué se siente al ser joven, tener talento y sufrir una depresión, estlibro es la respuesta" Dafne Merkin.
Experiencia personal de (bibliotecaria) ¿cuántos de nosotros tomamos Prozac durante los años 90 del siglo pasado creyendo que sería nuestra salvación contra la depresión.

It's crazy how this book was written in the early 90s and it is still relevant.

I think the only reason I like this book is because I read it during a particular period in my life-- that is, when I was deep in the throes of depression, needing an understanding companion, though ultimately the book only really served to satisfy my own self-pitying.

As a person with depression, reading Prozac Nation was like being forced to take a guided tour of my younger years. Elizabeth Wurtzel holds no punches in describing her agonizing battle with her mental illness. However, her insightful, well educated mind is the second commentator in the book, constantly analyzing, pushing for answers and screaming rhetorical questions that have gone unanswered for millennia. The ensuing dialogue speeds to the end, revealing much about the title of the book.
