The story that inspired the major motion picture Beautiful Boy featuring Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet.

This New York Times bestselling memoir of a young man's addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery.

Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge into the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It's a harrowing portrait--but not one without hope.

Review:

"Nic Sheff's wrenching tale is told with electrifying honesty and insight."--Armistead Maupin, author of The Night Listener and Michael Tolliver Lives

"Difficult to read and impossible to put down."--Chicago Tribune

"Tweak is...Bukowski and Burroughs, the heart to his dad's head--and the kid can write."--Seattle Weekly

"An unflinching chronicle of life as an addict."--U.S. News & World Report

"Full of jaw-tightening and occasionally grisly scenes of shooting up, deals gone bad, guns and sex, Sheff's story takes off like a shot in the arm with a terse, honest and spontaneous narrative."--Kirkus Reviews

Review of Tweak and Beautiful Boy "Both takes on this story are riveting, brilliantly written, thoughtful, searingly honest and equally essential. They should be mandatory reading for every teenager and every parent of one."--London Daily Mail

"The trajectory of drug addiction is nothing new, but Sheff's lucid, simple prose makes the heartbreaking journey seem fresh."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A raw and sad account, vivid in its depiction of the pleasures and tunnel vision of addiction and the challenges of sobriety."--BCCB

"Raw, powerful, and honest."--The Bookseller
