Publisher's Summary

From the cow fields of Connecticut to the streets of San Francisco, Joe Clifford's Junkie Love traverses the lost highways of America, down the rocky roads of mental illness to the dead ends of addiction. Based on Clifford's own harrowing experience with drugs as a rock 'n' roll wannabe in the 1990s, the book draws on the best of Kerouac and the Beats, injecting a heavy dose of pulp fiction as it threads a rollicking narrative through a doomed love triangle, lit up by the many strange characters he meets along the way. Part road story, part resurrection tale, Junkie Love finds a way to laugh in one's darkest hour, while never abandoning its heart in search of a home.

Telling it like it is.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. The story was heavy, just like life of an addict is. Got down to the nitty gritty. Interesting read, would recommend to anyone with an addiction problem or who knows someone with an addiction problem.

WOW! an inside look into an junkies mind

Wow! This book was crazy and intense. Definitely lets you look inside of a addicts mind on how he or she thinks. Many people don't understand why or how other people become addicted to drugs. ... In reality, drug addiction is a complex disease, and quitting usually takes more than good intentions or a strong will, sadly. I guess if it was easy, we wouldn't have any addicts around.
I loved learning how he thought, and how it was all about his next high. It didn't matter what the costs were. it really helped me understand their point of view on things, and its sad.
The story was excellent with a few gross parts. It really takes you deep into their mindset. I would highly recommend this book to anybody. Especially to those that would love to know more about how addiction works and how they think. This is an easy listen in the nonclinical setting, easy-to-follow, and a real-life story. well worth the credit
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
