Product description

Amazon.com Review

In 1985 William Styron fell victim to a crippling and almost suicidal depression, the same illness that took the lives of Randall Jarrell, Primo Levi and Virginia Woolf. That Styron survived his descent into madness is something of a miracle. That he manages to convey its tortuous progression and his eventual recovery with such candor and precision makes Darkness Visible a rare feat of literature, a book that will arouse a shock of recognition even in those readers who have been spared the suffering it describes.


A chilling yet hopeful report from a mental wilderness into which one in ten Americans disappears...enlightening...fascinating. -- Chicago Sun-Times

Compelling...harrowing...a vivid portrait of a debilitating disorder...it offers the solace of shared experience. -- The New York Times
