"A subtle, personal, and powerful book about the geography and experience of melancholia." Kay Redfield Jamison, author of Night Falls Fast and An Unquiet Mind "Jeffery Smith. has written a gripping personal memoir of the disease he calls by its early name, melancholia. He throws wonderful curve balls at his topic, using creative devices and poetic writing to get at the depth and range of depression." Cynthia Crossen, The Wall Street Journal "Like Annie Dillard's Pulitzer Prize-winning Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, [it is] a compendium of one writer's reading and thinking on the subject. What makes it singular is the intellectual and moral seriousness with which [Smith] thinks and writes about his illness while in the grip of it. a searing account."

Where the Roots Reach for Water: A Personal and Natural History of Melancholia - used book

ISBN: 086547592X

ID: 3809844

Winner of the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir Jeffery Smith was living in Missoula, Montana, working as a psychiatric case manager when his own clinical depression began. Eventually, all his prescribed antidepressant medications proved ineffective. Unlike so many personal accounts, Where the Roots Reach for Water tells the story of what happened to Smith after he decided to give them up. Trying to learn how to make a life with his illness, Smith sets out to get at the essence of--using the old term for depression--melancholia. Deftly woven into his "personal history" is a "natural history" of this ancient illness. Drawing on centuries of art, writing and medical treatises, Smith finds ancient links between melancholia and spirituality, love and sex, music and philosophy, gardening, and, importantly, our relationship with landscapes. biographies,depression,health fitness and dieting,mental health,mountains,nature and ecology,professionals and academics,science and math,social scientists and psychologists,special needs Depression, North Point Press
