Kathleen Norris had written several much loved books, yet she couldn't drag herself out of bed in the morning and couldn't summon the energy for her daily tasks.

Even as she struggled, Norris recognized her familiar battle with acedia, a word she had discovered in early Church text years earlier. Fascinated by this "noonday demon", so familiar to those in the early and medieval Church, Norris knew she must restore this forgotten but important concept to the modern world's vernacular.

An examination of acedia in the light of psychology, spirituality, the healing powers of religious practice, and Norris's own experience; Acedia & Me is both intimate and historically sweeping, brimming with exasperation and reverence, sometimes funny, often provocative, and always insightful.
