Publisher's Summary

The shocking nightmare story of a black heroin addict
Trapped in the festering sore of a major American ghetto, a young man and his girlfriend - both attractive, talented, and full of promise - are inexorably pulled into the living death of the hardcore junkie. It is a horrifying world where addicts will do anything to get their next fix.
For 23 years of his young life, Donald Goines lived in the dark, despair-ridden world of the junkie. It started while he was doing military service in Korea and ended with his murder in his late 30s. He had worked up to a hundred-dollars-a-day habit - and out of the agonizing hell came Dopefiend.

raw truth

I am now a recovering addict but when I read this book(in jail) I was still a junkie and everything written in this book is the raw truth about addiction. This is a very good read!!!

Unapologetically vivid and brilliantly executed. Goines brings a horrifying glimpse into drug addiction that is both cringe worthy and intriguing. Kenerly's reading feels like a cast of a thousand actors. Excellence.
