Ravi S. Kahn

Author Ravi S. Kahnabout this book: During the time that I was struggling with depression, I met a lovely lady in the senior club at the local community center. Her name was Satya (the word Satya means "the truth" in Sanskrit).

Soon, I realized that she was also suffering. Satya became my friend. She wanted to know what made me come to this country and if I was happy here. She shared the story of her grandparents, who immigrated to this country a century ago and struggled.

In a few months, my health started breaking down. I suffered one minor stroke, followed by a couple of hospitalizations for heart problems. It all happened in the same year. My brain started failing me a bit, and driving became involved. I began believing that I was on my way to saying goodbye to this world. After a five-year recovery, I decided to write my stories. The decision to write a book about my depression—and how I got out—was all mine. I worked many years to overcome my problems. I recovered bit-by-bit and was able to get control of myself. I started to enjoy my normal life again.

• "This timely and relevant memoir is an intimate portrayal of the loneliness and loss involved in aging, and of today's clashes between cultures and generations." - FOREWORD REVIEWS
