The Other Side of Silence

ISBN: 9781849537544

Author: Linda Gask    Publisher: Summersdale Publishers

'If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel’s heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.’ George Eliot, Middlemarch Having spent her life trying to patch up the souls of others, psychiatrist Linda Gask came to realise that being an expert in depression doesn’t confer any immunity from it – she had to learn to focus on her own depression and take care of herself, too. Artfully crafted and told with warmth and honesty, this is the story of Linda’s journey, interwoven with insights into her patients’ diverse experiences of depression. It sets out to convey, in a new and original way, how depression truly feels, and to challenge the stigma that still surrounds this life-shattering illness.
