Trent Latta asked Geoff Dyer:

Geoff, you wrote about depression in Out of Sheer Rage, and about the need to survive by simply putting one foot in front of the other. Have you had a chance to reflect on that further since writing the book? And if so, do you have anything to add? For example, what, generally speaking these days, helps you get out of bed in the morning?

Geoff Dyer I never have any trouble getting out of bed. I always wake up in a good mood - though that mood often deteriorates quickly and drastically. I think we're programmed to get out of bed. Putting one foot in front of another is still the best way forward.
