520    What is depression? Is it a persistent low mood or a 
       complex range of symptoms? Is it a single diagnosis or a 
       diversity of mental disorders requiring different 
       treatments? In A Cure for Darkness, science writer Alex 
       Riley explores these questions, digging into the long 
       history of depression and chronicling the lives of 
       psychiatrists and scientists who sought cures for their 
       patients.
