About this author


I've just finished a book, which even I have a hard time believing; I go around the house saying, "I've finished the book" sometimes, just to get the feel of the words in my mouth--but anyway: this is the third book I've written but in some ways the first. The first two were about depression, and were written with first-hand experience very much in mind, and after them I got to a point where I... Read more of this blog post »

I read Paris Trout 20 years ago, and thought that nobody--not even Harper Lee or Flannery O'Connor--had ever captured so well what it was like to grow up in the South of the 1950s and 60s. (I grew up in the 1960s and 70s, but in a little patch of the...more

“The unexamined life is not worth living, but the unlived life is not worth examining.”
Tracy Thompson

“The brain is the only organ that tries to make sense of its pain. It is as if the bone were trying to understand the break, as if the blood vessel could comprehend its rupture. But this is also its greatest impediment to understanding. The mind clings fiercely to any alternative to chaos, even if that alternative is self-destruction.”
Tracy Thompson, The Beast: A Journey Through Depression

“We live in a culture where we put our most intimate secrets on the Internet and have no idea who our next- door neighbors are, where we labor in cubicles all day and go home at night to update our Facebook page. What we lack- what most of us instinctively know we are missing, what makes so many of us log on to Facebook in the first place- is community.”
Tracy Thompson, The New Mind of the South
