Depression Part 2 by Hyperbole and a Half is the most important thing you’ll read all day.
I’m not exaggerating when I consider this lady the voice of… well, perhaps not a generation but a mindset. There’s really no way to describe how genuine her writing is, how much it speaks to the experience of so many people while steering away from cliche and pretension. I’ve read so many people say OH, EXACTLY to what she writes, much more than any other author—internet or otherwise—active today. I guess it’s the combination of her unalloyed tone, unique treatment of content and the advantages of the medium, such as the rapid dissemination of the comic/blog format that combine to make her writing and art so resonant and accessible to those who identify most with it.
