Product description

Review

"The Taste of Cigarettes, Jon Vreeland's memoir of the romance and degradation of heroin addiction in Southern California, is compellingly readable. With a novelist's sense of pacing (and a playwright's ear for dialogue), Vreeland moves his incident-filled story along briskly, from its startling opening to its satisfying conclusion." David Starkey, author of Like a Soprano

"Jon knocked my socks off with this compelling story of living in the parallel universe of heroin addiction." Frank Frost, author of Gershwin's Last Waltz and Other Stories

"Vreeland defies storytelling physics with a wholly arresting account of his outlaw degeneracy, yet told with a candor so charming it borders on innocence." Craig Clevenger, author of Dermaphoria

About the Author

Jon Vreeland was born in Long Beach California. He is a writer of prose, poetry, plays and journalism. His twenty-year addiction to drugs and alcohol is the essence of his writing, and one of the main components in his perpetual process to treating this terrible disease; a battle so many have lost. Vreeland was raised in Huntington Beach by his parents and now lives in Santa Barbara California with his wife and successful artist, Alycia Vreeland.
