"Florid" is a well chosen adjective. What can I say, when faced with the book as a Freshman in college, I was lost. Maybe a few semesters later I could have coped, but the profs were pushing it hard, it was still
book du jour (1969).
But later, Sophie's Choice engaged me.

This piece in Slate focuses on Styron’s book on his experience with depression, ‘Darkness Visible.’
Apparently Styron was devoting most of his time in later years to talking about depression and helping fellow sufferers. I knew he had done that kind of thing but didn’t realize the scope of his activities.
