David Sandum appeared to have it all: a beautiful young family and a promising career ahead as a business consultant. But his life started veering off course, and upon returning to his native Scandinavia, he fell into an inexplicable, deep depression.

I’ll Run Till the Sun Goes Down is a searingly honest account of David’s struggle to overcome his crippling mental illness. After years of hopeless despair, bleak hospitalizations, and shattered dreams, he is finally saved by his art. The paintbrush becomes his lifeline.

Richly illustrated with the work of the artists who have inspired him as well as samples of his own drawings and paintings, this memoir offers both a compelling read and a visual story of David’s courageous battle with depression.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

David’s book opened my eyes to the enormous difficulties that living with this crippling disease brings – not only to the individual, but to family and close friends. David is a fighter and eventually found art was his salvation in dealing with his depression – painting provided a much needed way to communicate and release his dark feelings. I would highly recommend this engaging read!

I am in awe of David’s book. It is one of the most honest and well-written memoirs I have read in a long time. I was immediately pulled in by his powerful story, as well as his artwork — especially his drawings. He doesn’t just tell us his story, he shows us.

*******

This book is a must read for anyone, but people who work with individuals who have a mental illness, or people who wish to understand and support relatives or friends who deal with mental illness of any kind, need to read I’ll Run Till The Sun Goes Down. I loved this book, and I love what I know about David Sandum from his book – it is a great gift to all of us.

*******

Harrowing, intense, poignant, and, above all, sincere are the best words I can use to describe David’s beautifully told memoir. Admittedly, it is difficult to read at certain points. Any empathetic person will definitely have to put the book down to catch their breath from time to time.

*******

The writing is compelling and well done, short chapters made reading it a pleasure, with plenty of time in between to reflect. He starts the chapters with a journal entry from that specific time in his life and it gives you a different perspective. I highly recommend this book, it is a great story, captivating and very inspiring.
