The Limits of my Language: Meditations on Depression


Much has been written about the treatment of depression, but its wider meaning has garnered less attention. Here Eva Meijer draws deeply on her own experiences to offer valuable insight into depression, framing it in a brand new way. She explores how depression can make us grow out of shape over time, like a twisted tree, how we can sometimes remould ourselves in conversation with others, and how to move on from our darkest thoughts.

The Limits of My Language is a poignant, stimulating search for the things, great and small – from philosophy and art to sitting quietly with a cat – that make our lives worth living.
