Summary, etc.:
With its deeply personal and seamless blend of memoir, cultural history, literary criticism, and journalistic reportage, this audiobook turns our understanding of the traditional addiction narrative on its head, demonstrating that the story of recovery can be every bit as electrifying as the train wreck itself. Leslie Jamison deftly excavates the stories we tell about addiction, both her own and others', and examines what we want these stories to do, and what happens when they fail us.
