    This girl may be depressed, but she knows how to party. Advertisement All this makes depression look pretty good. Sure, the author was a miserable wreck, but she really lived. Throughout the book, Wurtzel mediates uncomfortably between depression as a political statement whose amelioration through pharmaceuticals is ignoble escapism, and depression as a chemical illness which should be treated medically.

    In an interview included in her book's press packet, she says that when she looks back on her days of depression. Capitalism can work out its kinks! Yet Wurtzel herself has been on Prozac for years: she started taking it in , when it was first being distributed.

    In her case, she said during a reading and question-and-answer session in the Adams House Senior Common Room last Sunday, it was that or eventual suicide, as she suffers from Atypical Depression, or Dysthymia That Wurtzel's brand of depression has a clinical name confers it a medical validity that complicates what seems to be the point of her book, which is that in this society any aware person should be depressed.

    During her appearance in Adams, Wurtzel said that she had proposed that the book be called I Hate Myself and I Want to Die, and that her publicist had thought up the actual title Wurtzel appeared to want to present herself as allied with her audience against the forces of marketing and capitalism.

    This confusion is a major flaw of the book. If Prozac Nation is meant to reflect a condition in which many of us privileged college students find ourselves, if it's supposed to provoke the realization that we're not alone in our misery, what about those of us who are really bummed out, but not "Atypically Depressed"? In that case, Wurtzel seems to suggest, it would be wrong to seek relief in anti-depressants, as they would take the edge off our disgust with this cruel world.

    Inasmuch as Prozac Nation sets out to make broad or generalizable points about the nature of society, the family, youth culture, politics, or whatever, it fails roundly. As the memoir of Wurtzel's troubled coming of age it might have some sort of appeal, if only a prurient and very limited one, especially to those familiar with the Harvard-specific sites of her antics. Depressives are constantly looking at other people and wishing they could laugh as much and be as upbeat. They are wishing, as Wurtzel put it, that they wont wake up afraid they are going to live.

    And while perhaps not as desparate as Wurtzel was concerning Rafe, I can undoubtedly relate to the feeling of wishing that there is someone who can "save" you from yourself. She described the black wave so well that I cried throughout the entire reading that someone knew and understood what I too felt but was not able to explain. And for that reason alone this book is an important read. Put aside the whiny instances that made Wurtzel unlikeable and focus more on her descriptions of what it feels like to go through this pain.

    Its helpful to sufferers to know that they are not alone and an important eye-opener to others that depression is not a self pity party, but a serious condition that should be treated as such. The struggle the author went through to get medicine is in stark contrast to the Rx drug world we now live in.

    Being part of this world I have firsthand experience experienced Prozac as a life changing force that finally brought the enlightenment to seek and continue therapy.

    But even the interest that inheres in a peer's extravagances is undercut by the fact that Wurtzel is neither a good writer nor an appealing individual.

    She comes off as an irritating, solipsistic brat. Wurtzel is interested not in depression as a phenomenon, but in her own depression, so her narrative will contain little interest even for depressed Harvard students, who would seem to be the perfect audience.
