I thought, “I’ll read a couple of pages of this just to confirm that it’s bad.” I couldn’t stop reading. When I did have to stop, I couldn’t wait to get back to it. I felt a small measure of the narrator’s compulsion in my own addicition to reading this book. Of course the topic is horrifying, but this was well-written. A great read for understanding the nightmares and rationalizations of the heroin addict.

Author Essay

This book is amazing. The writing is so beautiful and the images so compelling–and frightening. It was impossible to put down.
