MOVING NEW MEMOIR BY JAMES BROWN
Husband, addict, father, skeptic. Now sixty—with years of sobriety under his belt—and the father of three sons, James Brown writes about finding a new path in life, making peace with the family whose ghosts have haunted him, and helping the next generation of addicts overcome their disease. Opening with the tragic tale of an elderly couple consumed by opioid addiction and moving through the horrors of a Las Vegas massacre, these essays draw on Brown’s personal journey of recovery to illustrate how an individual life, in all its messiness and charm, can offer a blueprint for healing. Evocative and hopeful, Apology to the Young Addict is a reinvention of the recovery memoir and a lasting testimony from a master writing at his peak.
I love my copy, its kept me sane in this era of the lock down; I can’t recommend it highly enough to my readers. A writer like this only comes along once in a lifetime. Don’t take my word for it…
Here are some blurbs on this classically talented storyteller.
Prose-wise―with all due respect to his late namesake―James Brown has earned his title as the Godfather of Junkie Soul.”
––Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight
“Vivid, shocking and funny . . . a darkly bright, hugely compassionate and oddly redemptive story of loss and failure, guilt and addiction.”
—London Independent on Sunday (Best Books of the Year)
“This book is a must read for any clinicians dealing with patients with substance abuse and dependency issues and also for patients and their families.”
– Ana E. Campo, MD, Addictive Disorders & Their Treatment
