George Scialabba is a prolific critic and essayist known for his incisive, wide-ranging commentary on literature, philosophy, religion, and politics. He is also, like millions of others, a lifelong sufferer from clinical depression. In How To Be Depressed, Scialabba presents an edited selection of his mental health records spanning decades of treatment, framed by an introduction and an interview with renowned podcaster Christopher Lydon. The book also includes a wry and ruminative collection of "tips for the depressed," organized into something like a glossary of terms—among which are the names of numerous medications he has tried or researched over the years. Together, these texts form an unusual, searching, and poignant hybrid of essay and memoir, inviting readers into the hospital and the therapy office as Scialabba and his caregivers try to make sense of this baffling disease. In Scialabba's view, clinical depression amounts to an "utter waste." Unlike heart surgery or a broken leg, there is no relaxing convalescence and nothing to be learned (except, perhaps, who your friends are). It leaves you weakened and bewildered, unsure why you got sick or how you got well, praying that it never happens again but certain that it will. Scialabba documents his own struggles and draws from them insights that may prove useful to fellow-sufferers and general readers alike. In the place of dispensable banalities—"Hold on," "You will feel better," and so on—he offers an account of how it's been for him, in the hope that doing so might prove helpful to others.

The sanctum, from the escape of worldliness, The soul pumped up with peace, Where the intellect is afraid to dare, For home, none can find there, But the vacancy of the soul Where there are neither doors nor entrances And to occupy, no price can be offered, I am home, pride banished, arrogance, fools pay!

The purpose of this book is to address questions that many Christians have about Depression, yet seldom ask.I spent many years of my life battling what appeared to be an invisible opponent called Depression. I thought that I was just going to have to manage the unpredictable attacks of emotional gloominess for the rest of my life.Which was it? Was Depression a disease like other mental health conditions? Was it just an emotional low that everyone had to deal with every now and then? Or was it a spiritual attack? I was full of questions, but I had no real answers that connected with my inner man. I thought that my emotional condition on a daily basis was like playing a game of Russian roulette. I honestly believed that I was just going to have to wait and see if I was going to be depressed or joyful each day. I thought that it was based on my hormones, my bank balance, spiritual progress, weather conditions or melancholic memories and holidays.I noticed that while there were categories and many symptoms associated with the types of Depression, there however was no concrete definition of what it was beyond it being a mental condition. I discovered that while the experts seemed to be clueless as to the source or the actual cause of depression; however, it does not have to be a mystery to us in the Body of Christ. Job 12:22 states,He reveals mysteries from the darkness and brings the deep darkness into light.This book, How I Be A "Real" Christian and Still Be Depressed contains revelatory truth that the Spirit shared with me about questions that many have about Depression, but seldom ask.

“A mock self-help book designed not to help but to provoke . . . to inveigle us into thinking about who we are and how we got into this mess.” (Los Angeles Times Book Review). Filled with quizzes, essays, short stories, and diagrams, Lost in the Cosmos is National Book Award–winning author Walker Percy’s humorous take on a familiar genre—as well as an invitation to serious contemplation of life’s biggest questions. One part parody and two parts philosophy, Lost in the Cosmos is an enlightening guide to the dilemmas of human existence, and an unrivaled spin on self-help manuals by one of modern America’s greatest literary masters.
