Killing the Black Dog is Les Murray's frank and poignant account of his struggle with depression. Both a courageous personal statement and a fascinating study of how the illness works, it offers insight and comfort to anyone who has encountered depression in their own life or in the life of a loved one. Murray reflects on how his life has changed in the years since he first confronted the 'black dog', and on the role depression played in some of his best writing. He describes his experiences - good and bad - along the road to recovery, and discusses the importance of contemplation, work and family. Accompanied by poems specially selected by Murray, this story, brave and perceptive, is a moving and invaluable resource.
