He's not a very good writer but he's got a heck of a story to tell and does make me laugh and cringe at the same time. I just can't bring myself to keep reading this book right now so it's be thrown into my pile of "abandoned" and I hope to come back to it later. Read full review

Another to hell and back memoir of drug use ( and TV writing)elevated by the author's heavy use of sarcasm and a sharp self-deprecating wit. Do not see the movie--read the book. Read full review
