Item description for Junkie Love by Phil Shoenfelt & Jolana Izbicka...

Addiction and loss in Camden Town, London, in the late 80's, when hope disappeared and hedonism turned to despair and self-loathing. The characters, the blank generation, are rootless and adrift, dislocated from their pasts with no belief in the aims and aspirations of a materialistic society. Instead of turning to politics or religion, they embark on a course of self-destructive sex and manically obsessive drug abuse, a journey to the end of the night from which many do not return. Largely autobiographical and leavened with irony and perverse humor, Junkie Love follows the protagonist into the heart of this morass, where corruption and dissipation approach transcendence.

Reviews - What do customers think about Junkie Love?

Heroin Mon Amour  Oct 26, 2002
The tale Shoenfelt tales is a familiar to anyone who's read THE STORY OF JUNK, JUNKY, CANDY, HOW TO STOP TIME, namely "how I fell in and out of love with heroin." Shoenfelt is very good on the details--you are right in every awful place he shoots up; unsparing and unsentimental about the attractions of heroin; the concactenation of pleasure and humiliation; difficult personal insights addiction can bring and the fact that doesn't redeem the misery you're making of your life and the lives of others. He also has a great sense of humor; the ability to laugh at himself and others; also sympathize with them.
