Book: Self-Portrait as a Sinking Ship
Author: Erica Abbott
The confessional-style of “Self-Portrait as a Sinking Ship” explores themes of depression, anxiety, and how mental illness can affect a person’s life. It also dives into how holding on to hope can pull a person through even the darkest moments of life.
