This slim volume is full of infectious rhythms and memorable lines, but you will have to read it yourself to discover which ones are calling your name. Beth-Sarah Wright has done what all good writers do: she has found the universal story in her story and made an offering of it for the rest of us.

author of Learning to Walk in the Dark

“It was an eye opening book with down to earth story telling. The moment I began to read it felt as if I knew her. My favorite term is still “insidious martyrdom” from a Caribbean woman’s perspective it was piercing and authentic. The book changed my life. I don’t suffer from depression I fight it. And guess what I’m winning!” .

Samantha Gooden, Director of Marketing, FLOW, Barbados.

Beth Sarah Wright’s beautiful book “Me? Depressed? – A Story of Depression from Denial to Discovery” employs her personal narrative to demystify and de-stigmatize major depressive disorder. She shares honestly with the reader the complex and devastating thoughts, feelings, and physical effects of depression, healing and its recurrence. This is a wonderful vignette that describes the individual as well as the cultural and societal challenges that one intelligent, articulate, and brutally honest young woman faces while learning to cope with a chronic, recurrent illness that affects the brain, the mind, and the body.

 Mark Hyman Rapaport, MD, Reunette W. Harris Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Chief of Psychiatric Services, Emory Healthcare

As a licensed mental health counselor, I have worked with many people over the years within the African-American and Caribbean communities. I know how difficult it is for my own communities to recognize the effects of depression. I have several clients that ignored the symptoms. I applaud, Dr. Wright for sharing her experience and opening the doors to understand the positive results of seeking help. She has allowed others to recognize the symptoms within herself. I, thank her for honestly talking about depression and the effects on herself, family and professional life.

“Dr.  Wright’s clarity and guidance on the topic of depression is stellar.  This step by step guide  provides companionship,  inspiration, and hard data to illuminate  the path from recognition to relief.  Science and wisdom  combine beautifully  here in the bright and courageous voice of Dr. Wright.  She models resilience and faith as she educates and points  the way to real, practical help.

“I particularly like the way in which  Wright moves forward and backward in time and place, Jamaica, The United Kingdom and the United States of America.  She accomplished this device smoothly and seamlessly.  Kudos.  Equally so, I really admire the way in which she grounded the work in a Caribbean context, not only in Jamaica generally but also culturally embracing the Caribbean archipelago….  I welcomed the reference to the emergence of West Indian nationalism.  In so doing Wright makes “Weeping May Endure for a Night”, into a 21st century Caribbean novel and not just some book set in the global village.  She manages to retain … a sense of history, a remembrance of heritage and a sense of identity.  Literature is more than turning these ideas into means to an end – we leave this to historians – literature is all about en-fleshing our stories.  Fiction is just about writing stories.  Wright has been successful.  This novel is literature; Caribbean literature, no less.  It is equally post colonial literature in its emerging best.”
