    Heavy stuff, and holy f Okay, will try to give this a proper review This is one hell of a ride on the dark side of crack cocaine addiction While I usually like my addiction memoirs with a heavy heaping of recovery, this focused mostly on the addiction itself Sometimes though, the story itself can be so powerful it needs to be told This is one mans journey from his first wonderful hig

    One of the finest memoirs I ve come across and I read a heck of a lot of them To be great, a memoir has to plunk you right in the middle of a set of experiences that might be diametrically opposed to your own and make it all so real that you feel you are living it Through this book I followed literary agent Bill Clegg on dozens of taxi rides between generic hotel rooms and bar toilets and New

    Harrowing, with a can t look away oh god I want to look away quality that fairly pulls the reader through the pages I know crack addicts but haven t read any accounts of the addiction from the inside, and I found Clegg to be adept at giving a sense of what serious substance abuse must be like for the user The rampant paranoia, the way the drug extends and collapses time, the peaks of the highs versus the plunges into the blackest of lows he nail
