Depression and magic tricks book
Review: Depression & Other Magic Tricks by Sabrina Benaim
Waking up to the news that Sabrina Benaim had released a poetry collection genuinely put a smile on my face this morning. It is a documentation of struggle and triumph, a celebration of daily life and of living. I never really felt like we got a solid look into the themes promised in the blurb above, rather just mentions of it. I feel like most of the pieces were more on loneliness and breakups and romance, as opposed to a sharp focus on mental health. Support creators you love. Buy a Coffee for nat bookspoils with Ko-fi.
After the break up the final one , I decided I needed space, time away from my normal life, my head and the dangerous comfort of knowing I could just stay in bed and binge on Netflix. This book had been recommended to me by a friend who has depression. She felt it was the best example of an honest discussion of what it feels like to have depression and all the ups and downs that go with it, in a very refreshingly clear, thoughtful and non self-pitying way. Touching on mental health, loneliness and heartache, Depression and other magic tricks proved to be the perfect literary therapy for me, catharsis without the tears. This break up was particularly hard to get my head around. Firstly I had the guilt of not being able to make it work.
