Praise from Theo Pauline Nestor, author of How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed


“I love this book! From the first page, I was swept up into the story and the narrator’s progress from a Lower East Side homeless shelter to rehab and beyond. Most stories of addiction focus on the addiction side of the story and say little about what the actual work of recovery looks like. Dopefiend is a riveting portrayal of the recovery side of the equation. Both funny and poignant, this book belongs on the shelf beside the very best of recovery memoirs, such as Knapp’s Drinking: A Love Story and Karr’s Lit.”
