  • Beautifully measured and adroitly paced ... mixing a matter-of-fact eye for detail with just enough emotion to unsettle and engross ... Addictive and masterful

    Julian Hall, The Independent
  • A gripping, graphic memoir that pounds relentlessly to its climax

    The Times
  • It has the power and precision of the best contemporary fiction. It does what the best writing always does, which is to make Clegg's experience part of your own

    Andrew O'Hagan
  • It's a remarkable achievement when a writer can evoke the most desperate episodes of addiction with the unflinching honesty required to make such a memoir worth reading, yet somehow manage to completely transcend sleaze, sordidness and vapid self-justification. Bill Clegg's story of a man - largely locked in hotel rooms, engaged in a desperate, heart-wrenching battle with himself - is destined to become a cult classic of writing on drug addiction

    Irvine Welsh
  • Beautifully written and elegantly frank... lyrical, funny and shattering
