American Junkie – Tom Hansen

Seattle heroin user/dealer’s autobiography. He seems to have lived through the movie Requiem for a Dream. I’m always fascinated by how people push the body to it’s limits. I prefer athletic pursuits of abuse but hearing what his body survived is also incredible and difficult to read in parts. While I read the book I enjoyed looking up on youtube some of the old bands he had been in and Nirvana video from a day he talks about Kurt Cobain.
