      “I just … I just hurt … inside. And when I tear at the outside it makes me feel less torn up on the inside.”
      She nodded, waiting.
      “I don’t want to die.”
      She waited.
      “Really, I don’t. It’s not a lie. I’m not suicidal. I just feel like sometimes I can’t keep myself from hurting me. It’s like there’s someone else inside of me who needs to physically peel those bad thoughts out of my head and there’s no other way to get in there. The physical pain distracts me from the mental pain.”

      Twenty-six-year-old Wurtzel, a former critic of popular music for New York and the New Yorker, recounts in this luridly intimate memoir the 10 years of chronic, debilitating depression that preceded her treatment with Prozac in 1990. After her parents’ acrimonious divorce, Wurtzel was raised by her mother on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The onset of puberty, she recalls, also marked the onset of recurrent bouts of acute depression, sending her spiraling into episodes of catatonic despair, masochism and hysterical crying. Here she unsparingly details her therapists, hospitalizations, binges of sex and drug use and the paralyzing spells of depression which afflicted her in high school and as a Harvard undergraduate and culminated in a suicide attempt and ultimate diagnosis of atypical depression, a severe, episodic psychological disorder. The title is misleading, for Wurtzel skimps on sociological analysis and remains too self-involved to justify her contention that depression is endemic to her generation. By turns emotionally powerful and tiresomely solipsistic, her book straddles the line between an absorbing self-portrait and a coy bid for public attention.

      Cut herself while she was an adolescent, there is a section that details this part of her life.

      I guard the words. I keep them tenderly, express them with my tangled flesh and tattered tongue. Words that form stories, or tales, or patterns. Words that can but hint at the delights of damnation, of the ultimate pleasures that wait for them all on the beyond-side of pain.

      Can anyone follow
      the ways of my pain?
      I live on the edge of a razor
      that cuts me to shreds
      as I move…
