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!
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.
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.
The narrator was excellent for this. I have no complaints at all.
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.
Telling it like it is.
