Reading Darkness Visible by William Styron -- NOT the one of same title by Golding. Styron describes vividly and poignantly his struggle with depression. As one who suffers from this illness myself, I found it the best description I've ever read about depression and the hope for its victims who struggle through. He also has good words of advice for loved ones who have to deal with it directly or indirectly.
I finished Virgins, it was ok, mostly a rote description of popular sources describing virgins, virginity, and purity. The author did not try to interpret or explore the implications at all. I've started The World Without Us by Alan Weisman, should be an interesting read. I watched a bit of the special made from the book, so I know what to expect.
