Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer's assistant, and somehow they met in bright lights, big city.

Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending audiobook but, above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.
