Victoria’s Book Review: Mental Illness and Women Writers – Girl, Interrupted & Prozac Nation


In this video, I look at two key works from women writers on mental illness and depression – Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel and Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen.

Not only were these works forerunners to contemporary discussions on depression and treatment, but they also were published in the 1990s, an era when women writers and women’s voices were at the forefront of cultural discussions.
