Read in July, 2009

This is a really eloguent memoir of addiction set in NY and LA primarily. Written by a friend and fellow former ACT-UP NY'er Patrick Moore, the book follows his path from first love through addiction and out the other side toward recovery, set in the haunts of a New York City which no longer exists. There is a scene - his first (sober) visit to the Saint - which perfectly captures the place and the period and which made me cry in nostalgia and recognition.

Stunning.
