Overview

Often overlooked in discussions of the great narcotics memoirs, Crowley's rarely read 1922 work 'Diary of a Drug Fiend' deserves to be mentioned alongside such addiction classics as 'Confessions of an English Opium Eater,' 'Naked Lunch,' 'Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas' and 'Trainspotting.'

Crowley's 'diary' is a hilarious, outrageous drug-fueled romp but also offers fascinating first-hand insight into early recreational heroin and cocaine use. Not long after its publication, the British press dubbed Crowley "The Wickedest Man In The World."

Follow the harrowing escapades of lovers Peter Pendragon and Louise Laleham as they embark on a drug-fueled bender through Europe and encounter the enigmatic magician who could save them.

I've never quite read a book like this before. The insight into the characters' minds is really unbelieveable. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand the struggle of drug-addiction.

A spectacular read. The book is a wonderful portrayal of the pyschology of the drug addict. Crowley does an excellent job creating several vivid and very believable characters that are sure to captivate the reader.
