|Plot Summary of Hello to All That: A Memoir of War, Zoloft, and Peace|
Holt, Jan 2005, 25.00, 284 pp.
paints quite a self portrait of his depressing teen years culminating with the miracle of Zoloft and his twenties as a journalist in Sarajevo in 1993. Mr. Falk explains that he was a happy preadolescent raised in a loving home when suddenly at twelve he became depressed and stayed that way for a dozen years until Zoloft gave him back his life. To celebrate, John becomes a war correspondent. This segment of the book relates how the devastated city is home to people trying to stay alive.
