Dog Years, Kaye Blegvad
Depression is like owning a bad dog. This is a book about learning to live with that dog, training it, making peace with it, and realizing you aren't alone.
The story starts in infancy, goes through teenage years (where the dog really sinks its teeth in), and into adulthood, where years of training have begun to pay off. It addresses the frequent connection between artists and mental health, and the effect depression can have on creative work, as well as on relationships and your own self identity. It's a book about surviving.
Cloth bound, with a foil blocked cover and color endpapers.
Printed on recycled paper.
