Product description

Review

"Nic Sheff's wrenching tale is told with electrifying honesty and insight." -- Armistead Maupin, author of The Night Listener and Michael Tolliver Lives

"Difficult to read and impossible to put down." -- Chicago Tribune

"Tweak is...Bukowski and Burroughs, the heart to his dad's head—and the kid can write." -- Seattle Weekly

"An unflinching chronicle of life as an addict." -- U.S. News & World Report

"Full of jaw-tightening and occasionally grisly scenes of shooting up, deals gone bad, guns and sex, Sheff’s story takes off like a shot in the arm with a terse, honest and spontaneous narrative." -- Kirkus Reviews

Review of Tweak and Beautiful Boy: "Both takes on this story are riveting, brilliantly written, thoughtful, searingly honest and equally essential. They should be mandatory reading for every teenager and every parent of one." -- London Daily Mail

"The trajectory of drug addiction is nothing new, but Sheff's lucid, simple prose makes the heartbreaking journey seem fresh." -- San Francisco Chronicle

“A raw and sad account, vivid in its depiction of the pleasures and tunnel vision of addiction and the challenges of sobriety.” -- BCCB

"Raw, powerful, and honest." -- The Bookseller

About the Author

Nic Sheff is the author of two memoirs about his struggles with addiction: the New York Times bestselling Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines and We All Fall Down: Living with Addiction. Nic lives in Los Angeles, California where he writes for film and television.
