Barry Longyear, a science fiction writer, tells the 'fictional' experience of a science fiction writer who goes through the drug and alcohol rehabilitation program of St. Mary's hospital. The escapades are wild, but the story rings so true and the characters are so real that they feel like friends. They are regular people, and Longyear describes vividly the difficulties and struggles of recovery. The main character, Jake Randecker, goes through torture that we actually laugh at while he finds his way up from the bottom. This book is very, very funny and very, very serious at the same time. Anyone who knows anyone with a problem with drugs or alcohol, and that is most of us, should read this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
