9780091914233: Junkie Love

Fiction. JUNKIE LOVE, set in Camden Town, London, during the late 1980s, is a study of addiction and loss, a nihilistic love story for the blank generation. Focusing on the psycho-pathology of addiction, it takes a look at what happens when hope disappears and hedonism turns to despair and loathing. Largely autobiographical and leavened with irony and perverse humor, JUNKIE LOVE "shoots straight from the gut, puts the picture in your face, what a junkie faces from moment to moment, through each day"-Ruth Weiss. With illustrations by Jolana Izbicka.

About the Author:

POUSSIN ET MOISE 2

Review:

A fine, gutsy, spare rendering of the drug underworld. -- Will Self

A gripping soldier's story of the times when the junkie's worst worries were himself and the badly cut drugs. -- (Iva Pekarkova)

A modern evocation of classic fin de siècle literature ... Junkie Love is as beautifully written as it is presented. -- Bizarre, #55, February 2002

A trenchant, cautionary tale, that successfully avoids the self-righteous tone of the "recovered." -- (Michael Gira, author of The Consumer)

Beautiful. A great story of drugs, sex and trying to figure things out in our fucked up world. -- Cherry Bleeds

Junkie Love is an autobiographical book gifted with great narrative power ... Shoenfelt succeeds in handling his material beautifully. -- Marianne Truce, Apple of the Eye

Junkie Love — a nice, nasty read. I enjoyed it a lot. -- (Nick Cave)

Shoenfelt is at his best when describing the psychology of addiction and recording the pains of withdrawal. -- The Prague Post, December 2001

The best book about heroin since Junkie. An essential read! -- Nikki Sudden

This book is tough love. Junkie Love shoots straight from the gut ... -- (ruth weiss)
