Real Audio Listen in RealAudio          help Need audio help?

Noonday Demon New Yorker writer Andrew Solomon has been quite candid in talking about his own bouts with depression. In learning more about his own condition and how best to cope with it, he became curious about how other cultures view depression -- and how they treat it. The result of his travels is a new award-winning book on the subject, called "The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression."

Our Traveler-at-Large Tony Kahn spent some time with Andrew, discovering what people in Greenland, Senegal and Cambodia do when they slip into a dark funk.
