About this title


In the tradition of Junkie, a literary exploration of the pleasures and pains of heroin. Scott Frank, who spent the better part of a year chasing his own love among the shaded porticos of the pink-stuccoed, gloriously rundown Geronimo Hotel at the edge of the Tuscon desert, offers an eloquent story and a starkly true portrait of the lowest levels of the drug world.

From Publishers Weekly:

"Why suffer?" asks Scott Frank, a Tucson writer and musician, unrepentantly recalling how his 1974 slide into heroin addiction helped salve his youthful pain over his mother's suicide. If his self-analysis seems sketchy, as is his self-righteous attack on drug policies, this meditative, ironic memoir summons up potent images from the shadow world of drug addiction. After moving into the once-romantic, low-rent Geronimo Hotel in his native Tucson, Frank linked up with fellow dabblers and junkies who introduced him to a subculture of dealers, users and thieves-an increasingly constricted circle of outlaw paranoia. With calm precision, Frank reconstructs the junkie's rituals of search, fix and bliss, even the moment when he felt addiction grip his body chemistry. He suffered his own corporeal horrors and managed a cross-border smuggling deal, but not until a botched burglary left him bloodied did he swallow his pride and ask his well-connected dad to get him into rehab. The Geronimo has now been yuppified; Frank retains a stubborn pride in its ghost stories.
