Coming of Age on Zoloft is a gripping (and remarkably balanced) portrait of the antidepressant generation twenty years after Prozac, one that weaves interview, personal narrative, and cultural history more elegantly than any prior account of its kind.  Sharpe’s memoir brings to light the difficult questions of identity and agency that often accompany medication at an early age and explores the ways in which the biochemical model of mental illness affects us as individuals and as a culture.
