Not just a book about junkies, but it’s still pretty interesting. Throughout history, the most creative voices and minds have also been among the most self-destructive. Writers, painters, musicians – think of pop stars like Kurt Cobain, artists like Jackson Pollack & writers like Kerouac – all of them tortured souls. In Genius and Heroin, you can learn what made them tick, their poisons of choice and the links that bind the doomed together. 368 pages.
