Author: Matthew Johnstone

I Had a Black Dog says with wit, insight, economy and complete understanding what other books take 300 pages to say. Brilliant and indispensable.’ – Stephen Fry

‘Finally, a book about depression that isn’t a prescriptive self-help manual. Johnston’s deftly expresses how lonely and isolating depression can be for sufferers. Poignant and humorous in equal measure.’ Sunday Times
