An enthralling memoir of a working-class chef made good—and bad

This is a tale about living on the edge, restaurant kitchens, drugs, and addiction. It's also a story of waking up from a heroin hell to discover real love, family, and success. But what happens when Jim, three young chefs, and a waiter do what it takes to feed Paris Hilton and her sizeable entourage after they turn up for lunch without warning? The highs and lows of this particular day climax in an unexpected tragedy that will change Jim's life forever. Raw, unapologetic, and behind-the-scenes in an utterly fascinating way, this is a rite-of-passage story, a cautionary tale about heroin, and a celebration of hospitality.
