BIOGRAPHIES - CLEGG, STAHL, CARR, BURROUGHS
The biography is one of my favourite liteary genres and within this especially the dramatic history of development, which balance on the edge of the normal. In this connection there are good - well-written and educational - biographies written by former addicts. Addiction is a stron power if it of alcohol, drugs, sex or liver paste.
Here you have some of the best ones - begin with "Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man" by Bill Clegg.
