“A great book, funny, angry, and overall, very uplifting and profoundly true.” – Joe Gordon, Forbidden Planet

Our world is plagued by madness. With leaders bent on insane policies and too many citizens locked in crippling depression, normality seems elusive and questionable.

Part travelogue, part indictment of mad medicine,
Depresso is Tom Freeman’s hilarious journey through the vagaries of the system to emerge scathed but content with being ‘bonkers’.

Depresso unfolds over several years, in China and the UK, during which anti-depressants reduce Tom to a zombie and alternative therapies drive him to comic re-examinations of his life, his work and relationships.

Throughout the adventured he is shadowed by the White Lizard, a familiar, a conscience, a pain in the butt who helps and hinders Tom’s recovery, and is justly the subject of some wicked humour.
Depresso is only semi-fictional.

A brutally personal, fascinating and funny insight into the nightmarish depths where depression can take a person.

•Comics journalist and curator

“A far from gloomy account of one angry man's struggle through and triumph over addictive anti-depressants that employs a free-wheeling, opinionated and feverishly creative approach which spreads over 250 dense pages.” – The Times Literary Supplement
