Marian Keyes 'suffering crippling depression'

6th January 2010

Watermelon author Marian Keyes has revealed she is suffering from 'crippling depression' which has left her unable to write.

In a message on her website, the novelist said that many of her readers will know that she has suffered from the condition for several years, but added that her current bout is in a 'totally different league'.

'I still feel like I'm living in hell. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't write, I can't read, I can't talk to people,' the 46-year-old explained.

The writer added that although her depression has left her unable to tackle reading a whole novel, she is attempting to find comfort and inspiration by studying uplifting quotes.

Among the works Keyes is drawing strength from are Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel, Raymond Carver's 'Late Fragment', William Shakespeare's Hamlet and Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote.

Her latest work, The Brightest Star In The Sky, was published in October last year, while her other novels include Lucy Sullivan Is Getting Married and Last Chance Saloon.
