Book Summary:

On the last day of 1985, I went home to live in Bunyah, the farming valley I had left some twenty-nine years earlier. My wife and our younger children followed two days later … at last I was going home, to care for my father in his old age and to live in the place from which I'd always felt displaced. What I didn't know was that I was heading home in order to go mad. Killing the Black Dog is Les Murray's frank and courageous account of his struggle with depression. Since this essay first appeared, hosts of readers have drawn insight from his account of the disease, its social effects and its origins in his family's history. Murray describes how patches of daylight now balance out those of darkness in his life.

Book Summary:

Killing the Black Dog is Les Murray's courageous account of his struggle with depression, accompanied by poems specially selected by the author. Since the first edition appeared in 1997, hosts of readers have drawn insight from his account of the disease, its social effects and its origins in his family's history. As Murray writes in this revised and updated edition, the title was premature. He had mistaken a remission for a cure, and thought himself freed from the severe depressive illness which had twice invaded his life. Now, in a new afterword, he describes a relapse, but also shares some of the fruits of his further contemplation. He shows gratitude for help previously unacknowledged, and describes how patches of daylight now balance out those of darkness in his life. A further half dozen poems have been added, reflecting a more complex understanding of depression and its role in the lives of its sufferers.

Book Summary:

I wrote this manuscript while still a patient in a psych ward at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. During this time, I was fortunate enough for my psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, and a few clinical psychology nurses to have read my unfinished manuscript. They all wanted more, and their praise was what I needed to complete the manuscript. The hospital staff was astounded at the insight and accuracy of how most patients suffering from major depressive disorder and anxiety felt and explained to them the same way I had written each account and episode. They also told me that there wasnt anything like this that they were able to find apart from what was in their own notes. I think that if I had something like this to read before my admission to hospital, it would have prepared me for what was not only happening at the time but also for what was about to happen next, and I wouldnt have felt so alone and scared. I believe that a large piece of the market would be for people that are suffering from depression and anxiety but havent spoken up or are still in denial. There has been much in the news of late about depression and the fly-in, fly-out workers and their struggle with suicide. What prompted me to write on this subject was an article I read on a LinkedIn site about depression in the workplace. I read the article and was blown away by the comments at the end by both employers and employees. These comments ranged from No way could I approach my boss for fear of being fired to the bosses themselves saying there is no way they would want their employees knowing about their struggles with the disease for fear of ridicule. It is an ever-increasing disease, and in America alone, the stats indicate 70 percent of the workforce have encountered depression and anxiety in one form or another, with the stats saying the increase over the next two years at this rate will be an alarming 95 percent of people in the workforce will either be going through their own sickness or know someone who is. The stigma attached to these diseases is astounding and must be addressed immediately as suicides and sickness is on the rise. The problem is that people who suffer at the hands of Depression and Anxiety rarely speak out. It is a silent killer. I believe very strongly that my manuscript will help not only those who suffer the disease but those who know someone who suffers or think they may suffer from Depression and or Anxiety but dont know what to do. The biggest obstacle I find is that people dont see an injury.

Book Summary:

Poetry. Simply one of the most admired and imitated poets of her generation, Lisa Jarnot's third volume of poetry does what only Jarnot can do. Decidedly lyrical, always reliant on repetition and rhythm, what emergies in this book is a catalog of loves and laments: "Just the eldergrass and him, the fog, unpoliced and safe inside the train, the thoughts of rain, Apollo, and the sun..." As Stan Brackage has said of Jarnot, "[H]er words are never severed from the means that engendered them; and the consequent meanings are never detached from the meditative drama of each whole poem."

Book Summary:

The object aimed at in the following pages is to put before the reader a statement, as complete and accurate as the writer can attain to, of the Superstitions and Antiquities of the Scottish Highlands and Islands. In other words, the writer has endeavoured to gather full materials relating to that subject, and to arrange them in a form that may prove of some scientific value. In pursuit of this object, it has been deemed advisable to derive information solely from oral sources. Books have been purposely avoided as authorities, and a rule has been laid down, and strictly adhered to, not to accept any statement in print regarding a Highland belief, unless also found current among the people. In the few books there are, having any reference to Gaelic lore, the statements have been so frequently found at variance with popular beliefs that this rule has been a necessity. There are a few honourable exceptions, but in general what is to be found in print on this subject is not trustworthy.
