How does a writer compose a suicide note? This was not a question that the prize-winning novelist William Styron had ever contemplated before.
In this true account of his depression, Styron describes an illness that reduced him from a successful writer to a man arranging his own destruction.
He lived to give us this gripping description of his descent into mental anguish, and his eventual success in overcoming a little-understood yet very common condition. The unabridged text of Darkness Visible by William StyronVINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS.
