Leaving dirty jersey

This is not a statement about my hygiene habits but an autobiographical account of crystal meth addiction written by a nice middle class East Coast boy who ended up in meth hell in California. It's an OK read but a bit devoid of anything really insightful and as such, slightly bland.

However one thing that did strike me is that the bits that describe the author's lowest points read very much in the same way as much of Dick's A Scanner Darkly, although without the humour.

The other thing is that it whichever item you look at on Amazon at the moment, they'll be a piece at the bottom saying:
