Would-Be Wurtzels Having a Moment

At Harper Perennial: Allison Lorentzen bought Coming of Age on Zoloft: Notes on My Generation on Drugs by Katherine Sharpe, billed as “a memoir-investigation of the use of antidepressants among young people” and scheduled for a 2012 release to coordinate with Prozac’s 25th birthday.

At Crown: Christine Pride bought Klonopin Lunch by Jessica Dorfman Jones, a “dark and often humorous memoir about the author’s early mid-life crisis at 30.” In addition to drugs there will be “eventual self discovery.”

We’re rooting for Lexapro Nation next–Prozac is so passe.
