Review:

"With a crisp detachment that belies his vulnerability and caring, Stein masterfully records the relentless pain-physical and psychological-that brings a 29-year-old Vicodin addict, to his door ... [a] haunting narrative ... Stein's clear-eyed compassion catapults her story from pathetic to sympathetic."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
