How does a writer compose a suicide note? This was not a question that the prize-winning novelist William Styron had ever contemplated before. In this true account of his depression, Styron describes an illness that reduced him from a successful writer to a man arranging his own destruction. He lived to give us this gripping description of his descent into mental anguish, and his eventual success in overcoming a little-understood yet very common condition.

The unabridged text of Darkness Visible by William Styron

Industry Reviews

"As short as a hangman's rope and nearly as arresting - an essay of great gravity and resonance. Never has Styron used so few words so effectively" * Newsweek *
"Imagine our joy when Vintage announced that it is publishing a collection of easily digestible books from the world's most celebrated writers on the experiences that make us human... They look good and read well. That's win/win in our book." * Stylist *
