A very fast and entertaining well-written privileged crack-addiction New York memoir.

Imagine that one scene as written in Augusten Burrough's alcohol addiction New York memoir, where he scores crack and stretch that out over a whole book and you'll quickly realize why you can't put it down.

The thrill in him evading responsibility, his friends/coworkers/and the law brings you in as a partner in his ongoing crime against himself and the world he has quickly become a part of and embraces above all else. Fascinating read and one I'm glad I did.
