Man, that is a good question. I am currently reading Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town, and it is very good. It's not as dry as it would seem from the description. There are great, breaking bad-ish stories in there. Like one guy, high on meth and believing black helicopters were hovering over his house, dumped all his chemicals down the drain and lit a cigarrette, starting a fire that melted his skin, nose and fingers off. And he continues to smoke meth, using his stumpy hands. I just ended the story of Lori Arnold (comedian Tom Arnold's sister) who was basically, like, Gus Fring.

Most of the books I find when I search for meth books are memoirs, which is... not exactly what I want. I did find Crystal Meth Cowboys which looks very intereting. Good reviews on amazon.

Reverie | 4 comments Thanks - will definitely check out your suggestions. I know its not appropriate to laugh at others misfortunes...but God meth really brings out the crazy in people - your story had me laughing.
