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.

Definitely one of the best books I've listened to!

Would you listen to Junkie Love again? Why?

I'm sure I would. This is a real life story of this horrible addiction and tells it like it is. Nothing pretty to sugar coat anything, just flat out honest.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Junkie Love?

The scene with the mouse droppings on the top of the refrigerator was really gross but it was a good example of the depth of this addiction.

What about Timothy McKean’s performance did you like?

The narrator was excellent for this. I have no complaints at all.

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. I appreciate the opportunity to listen to this story. It was heartbreaking, yet gives hope that a person can get through this addiction and find a life again. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the raw truth of this addiction.

If you could sum up Junkie Love in three words, what would they be?

What A Story!!!

What did you like best about this story?

The honesty of the author. And, of course that the author landed on the other side alive.

What about Timothy McKean’s performance did you like?

The narration was perfect. I had to keep reminding myself that it was not the author doing the narration.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not only one moment, many moments. His ties to his mother that were strained at times, but ultimately they were good. Family wins out sometimes.

Any additional comments?
