Dr. Peter D. Kramer—insightful novelist, social critic, and author of best-sellers including Listening to Prozac, and distinguished professor of medicine at Brown University—will speak about his new book (above), which is already hailed as a New York Times Book Review editors’ choice and will be the subject of his Library of Congress National Book Festival talk on September 24 at the DC Convention Center.
Reviewers have applauded the humanity and humility of the book, which nonetheless takes a clear stand that antidepressants work and work well in many cases. “He makes a case for psychiatry as human- istic science,” says The Atlantic. “Anyone who wants to hear what Prozac has to say will be interested in this book,” says the Associated Press.
The book will be available for purchase and signing.
