This is the rare book where the mundane details of life put you on the edge of your seat. Equal parts thrilling and thoughtful, Scorah's memoir is the first time I've seen my own experience living overseas reflected pitch-perfectly on the page. A timely reminder that sometimes it's easier to find ourselves in words than it is in the culture around us.

New York Times reporter David Carr was a giant in his field, covering media and culture, and starring in the award-winning documentary Page One: Inside the New York Times. This book, his investigation into his own past, is grim and gripping and champions the merit and potential of individuals veiled by the label and struggle of addiction.
