David's Inferno: A Memoir Of Depression

http://www.vpr.net/audio/programs/84/2013/03/vpr-vermont-edition-20130318.mp3

For two years, Vermont writer David Blistein found himself plunged into the dark woods of a major depression. After emerging, he reflected on the experience and he's turned those thoughts into a memoir. Blistein uses his own story to offer insight into depression's effects on relationships, creativity, and spirituality. Monday on Vermont Edition, Blistein discusses his book, David's Inferno: My Journey Through The Dark Woods of Depression.

Also in the program, Vermont's early organic farmers. A new exhibit at the Vermont History Museum shows photographs and stories of early organic pioneers of the 1960's and 1970s. We talk with Susan Harlow about her work on the exhibit, Plowing Old Ground.

And we look ahead at the business before the Legislature this week.
