Memoir/Literature\"James Frey's staggering recovery memoir could well be seen as the final word on the topic,\" - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLEAt the age of 23, James Frey woke up on a plane to find his four front teeth knocked out, his nose broken, and a hole through his cheek. He had no idea where the plane was headed nor any recollection of the past two weeks. An alcoholic for ten years and a crack addict for three, he checked into a treatment facility shortly after landing. There he was told he could either stop using or die before he reached age 24. This is Frey's acclaimed account of his six weeks in rehab.\"The most lacerating tale of drug addiction since William S. Burroughs' Junky.\" - THE BOSTON GLOBE\"Frey's book sets itself apart... spare, deadpan language belies the horror of what he's describing - a meltdown dispatched in telegrams.\" - THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW\"Anyone who has ever felt broken and wished for a better life will find inspiration in Frey's story.\"-PEOPLE\"Ripping, gripping... it's staggeringly sober book whose stylistic tics are well-suited to its subject matter, and a finger in the eye of the culture of complaint.... Engrossing.\" - THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
