Actor, broadcaster and writer Rhik Samadder’s memoir about mental illness, bad acting, backpacking with his mother, and the infinite ache of being alive was described by The Guardian’s Kate Kellaway as “one of the most eccentric and uplifting memoirs [she has] ever read.” Brace yourself as Rhik regales us with the story of that most unlikely of books: the hilarious depression memoir.

Memoar karya Rhik Samadder, seorang aktor, penyair, dan penulis, mengenai penyakit mental, akting buruk, perjalanan dengan ibunya, dan rasa sakit yang tak berkesudahan karena masih hidup, digambarkan oleh tulisan Kate Kellaway dalam The Guardian sebagai “salah satu memoar paling eksentrik dan membuka pikiran yang [pernah ia] baca”. Persiapkan diri Anda saat Rhik menghibur kita semua dengan kisah buku yang paling tidak mungkin tersebut: memoar depresi yang menggelikan.
