Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions

Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions
Johann Hari
Bloomsbury, 2023

Johann Hari writes compellingly about his struggle with depression and addiction. He writes about what it means to be human, the compelling nature of our connection to one another, and to nature.

Many authors have written recently about the benefits of natural spaces for the human nervous system and brain. Hari devotes a whole chapter to exercise outside. Another chapter is about meaningful and enjoyable work, and still more is written about the simple benefits of friendship.

Lost Connections is a book of hope, discovery and joy. Highly recommended.

Let’s Kill Agatha Christie

Acknowledged as the “Queen of Cosy Crime”, Agatha Christie’s detective stories often featuring Miss Marple or Hercules Poirot, have been translated into many languages and adapted into many film, television and stage productions. Anthony Hinds’s Let’s Kill Agatha Christie while making fun of the genre popularised by Christie, is also a ridiculously funny play staged with energy and style by the Genesian.
