"A book that became a cultural touchstone."--The New Yorker Elizabeth Wurtzel writes with her finger in the faint pulse of an overdiagnosed generation whose ruling icons are Kurt Cobain, Xanax, and pierced tongues. In this famous memoir of her bouts with depression and skirmishes with drugs, Prozac Nation is a witty and sharp account of the psychopharmacology of an era for readers of Girl, Interrupted and Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar

Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead : the Frank Meeink Story as Told to Jody M. Roy, Ph. D by Frank Meeink( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Autobiography of a Recovering Skinhead is Frank Meeink's raw telling of his descent into America's Nazi underground and his ultimate triumph over drugs and hatred. Frank's violent childhood in South Philadelphia primed him to hate, while addiction made him easy prey for a small group of skinhead gang recruiters. By 16 he had become one of the most notorious skinhead gang leaders on the East Coast and by 18 he was doing hard time. Teamed up with African-American players in a prison football league, Frank learned to question his hatred, and after being paroled he defected from the white supremac

More, now, again : a memoir of addiction by Elizabeth Wurtzel( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Det hadde gått så langt at hun ikke kunne gå mer enn fem minutter uten å knuse en pille og sniffe den inn. Til tross for verdenssuksessen med sine memoarer i boken "Prozac Nation" og berømmelsen som fulgte med den hadde ingen ting endret seg i Elizabeth Wurtzels hode. Hun anså seg selv som mislykket. Hun klarte ikke å takle forhold. Hun klarte ikke å beholde noen jobber. Utslitt av å prøve å forstå den verden hun anså som stadig mer falsk, forlot hun New York og la i vei mot Florida, men ikke før hun hadde fått en resept på Ritalin fra sin psykiater (et stoff som gis til hyperaktive barn). Denne boken handler om det å søke lykken, moralsk fordervelse og viljen til å overleve rovdrift på seg selv. Elizabeth Wurtzel fikk mye oppmerksomhet i Norge da boken "Bitch" kom ut, både blant norske lesere og i pressen. Stor heftet utgave. Forhåndsomtale
Creatocracy : How the Constitution Invented Hollywood by Elizabeth Wurtzel( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The defining characteristic of America is our fanaticism: We dream big, we think large, we create grandeur…" And we created Elizabeth Wurtzel: a celebrated writer who has lent her voice to depression, to women scorned, to addiction, and now to the Constitution of our great states. True to form, Wurtzel brings to life the dry document that framed our nation, homing in on one key feature--the Intellectual Property clause--which she credits for everything cool in our country, from Bruce Springsteen and rock 'n roll, to Jeff Koons and his stainless steel balloons, to Half & Half in our coffee. Creatocracy takes everything you thought you knew about pilgrims and their plainly puritanical sensibilities, flips it on its head, throws glitter on it, sets it to a flashy pop score, then throws it a big coming out party. In a movie version of this American origin story, Baz Luhrmann would be calling all the shots. Elizabeth Wurtzel has masterfully written a crash-course in American history and the arts, wise and witty, full of humor and insight. This is pop patriotism in book form.--Back cover
