About Depression & Other Magic Tricks

Product Description Depression & Other Magic Tricks is the debut book by Sabrina Benaim, one of the most-viewed performance poets of all time, whose poem "Explaining My Depression to My Mother" has become a cultural phenomenon with over 50,000,000 views. Depression & Other Magic Tricks explores themes of mental health, love, and family. It is a documentation of struggle and triumph, a celebration of daily life and of living. Andrea Gibson, author of Take Me With You writes "I read this book on a day I couldn't get out of bed and it made me feel like I had a friend in the world...Simply put, this book disappears loneliness." Review "I read this book on a day I couldn't get out of bed and it made me feel like I had a friend in the world. Slow-dancing with depression and heartbreak, the loss in Sabrina Benaim's poems arrives as a roadmap; a guide to finding ourselves in what we lose. The magic trick of this collection is that "In Depression & Other Magic Tricks, Sabrina Benaim has devised a maze of language that both prods and lulls the reader deeper into the tangle: "What is the name of a place that everyone can see is burning...& that place is not a place but a person." Unafraid to address the intangible murk of depression's stronghold in the face of grief, Benaim writes "when the sky fell...you would think i would have run." And aren't we all this surprised by what we will and will not do in the heat of our own undoing? It is a thing of courage to address the bottomless dark with whole words, to trumpet its omnipresence, to name it and not flinch." -- Jeanann Verlee, author of Said the Manic to the Muse About the Author Sabrina Benaim is a writer, performance & teaching artist, whose home base is Toronto.
