9780091953911: My Name Is...

A drink makes me feel better. For a bit. And then I feel worse, and the pain inside comes back. Worse than ever. My name is Hannah. 'To be or not to be, ' that's the most fundamental choice of all, and the one I have to make now. Only I can make it, I have learned that much, and I know what it is

Review:

"This superb book is sad, terrifying and uplifting in equal measure. Every parent, every young man or woman, and anyone who "likes a drink" should read it." -- Anne Robinson "The tenacity Campbell brought to bear in politics is matched here by his gripping inhabitation of his characters. Stunning," Independent on Sunday "My Name Is... offers a compelling insight into addiction from the outside in, giving a 360-degree look at the cause and effect of the illness. It possesses an emotional weight for each speaker - an impressive feat when some of these characters feature for less than four pages." Irish Examiner "It is a sad and terrifying story, well-researched and timely... Campbell's idea of telling the story through the self-contained testimonies of every person who came into contact with Hannah during her spiral into self-harm is clever and affords the reader a 360 degree view of what it is to deal with a vulnerable deceitful alcoholic in denial... Campbell has taken the vilified, sprawling, drunken youths caricatured in tabloid headlines and, in one young girl, showed us the damaged human beings beneath. For that he deserves much credit." The Times (Saturday Review) "A gripping account of an alcoholic teenage girl" Guardian
