Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anyone who cares about an addict will find hope in Sheffs forthright, one-of-a-kind account of his struggle to overcome his sons methamphetamine habit.

Review:

"Sheff's memoir offers his side of the story about his son Nic's downfall into drug and alcohol abuse. Anthony Heald opts for a slightly theatrical performance, which distances the listener from what should be an extremely personal and emotional tale. While never over-the-top, Heald's reading is more grounded in the world of fiction than nonfiction. His vocal interpretations of characters are improbable and the dialogue comes off as unrealistic. A touching story gets lost in translation from word to mouth. A Houghton Mifflin hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 30, 2007). (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
