A revelatory work of intimate investigative journalism: William Burroughs for the Breaking Bad generation.

Luke Williams was a freelance journalist researching addiction to crystal methamphetamine when the worst possible thing happened ― he became addicted to it himself. Over the next three months, he descended into psychosis.

This dark, raw story charts Williams’ recovery from crystal-meth addiction, and his investigation into its usage and prevalence today. It also traces the history of methamphetamine: from its legal usage in the early 20th century, to its contemporary status as one of the most feared drugs in the world.
