Wow, Jerry, who knew. This story just rips at you and the torment that travels with drug fueled lives. Interesting, terrifying, sometimes funny, and proud you could pull out of it.

Another to hell and back memoir of drug use ( and TV writing)elevated by the author's heavy use of sarcasm and a sharp self-deprecating wit. Do not see the movie--read the book.

Yeah... but Stahl's voice is tolerable because it is self-depreciative with a fair amount of smarm... James Frey was just kinda whiny. I only read half of the Million book about a year or two before the Oprah anointment & subsequent teary admission because it was JUST THAT BORING. Jerry Stahl is funny even when he's wallowing in the dregs and totally absent self-pity, which is important with this sort of memoir. He brought it all gloriously crashing upon himself as do we all. I wanna go back and watch a few episodes of ALF now that I know he was shooting up every half hour during the writers' brainstorming sessions.

Jerry Stahl is amazing...Simply fantabulous,seriously. (inappropriate language - NOT allowed *smiles*) He was so under-rated for song long and now he's finally making it. His books have sent me cackling out lout in the bookstores and in classrooms to where I've been sent out. I'm a young writer myself. Even though, I was barely 'sperm' when he was going through his 'traumas', I've followed him as my intellect grew. Jerry, I LOVE YOU!
