This Close to Happy: A Reckoning with Depression

RSVP

Feb 21 @ 7:15 pm

Los Angeles Central Library
630 West 5th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90071 United States

Taking from essays on depression she has written for The New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine, Daphne Merkin’s new memoir This Close to Happy is the rare, vividly personal account of what it feels like to suffer from clinical depression. In trying to sort out the root causes of her affliction, Merkin reflects on her childhood, her mother, her life as a writer, her marriage, and the birth of her child as she discusses in poignant detail various therapists, treatments, and hospitalizations for depression along the way. In an intimate conversation on her lifelong battle with depression and her search for release, Merkin is joined by her friend Jill Soloway, the Emmy-winning creator of Transparent.
