  • "Destined to become a cult classic of writing on drug addiction."

  • "It's an honest and wonderfully crafted book by a man as intoxicated by language as he was by crack – A.L. Kennedy."

    Guardian [Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man]
  • "I loved Bill Clegg's Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man because of its unflinching honesty... There is a passage in it in that is among the most tender and desperate I have ever read. It is also extremely funny."
