I admit, I was skeptical. I wasn't in love with Tree of Smoke, and thus, wasn't certain I wouldn't roll my eyes at a junkie narrative. But he got me with his details:

"... probably 'Misty Blue' was playing as I held her and felt her ribs moving in my hands." (pg 112)

"His wife had finished her bath. The door was just shutting behind her. There seemed to be nothing left in that bathroom then but the flatness of that door." (pg 144)
