A prequel to the controversial Million Little Pieces, this book is Frey's love letter to Henry Miller. After selling enough drugs to live in Paris for a year and escape "the creaking machinery of humanity," he spends his time in a drug-induced fog drinking, sleeping around, and writing. At this story's heart is a tragic love story borne from reckless behavior and youthful ambitions. ~ Reviewed by Whitney Kaaz

Nico Walker saw over 200 missions in Iraq as an army medic, came home with severe PTSD, became addicted to heroin and then started robbing banks. In a voice reminiscent of Holden Caulfield, Walker recounts his story as fiction with beautiful simplistic raw emotion, tinged with dark humor. The creation of this book was as fascinating as the novel itself! ~ Reviewed by Whitney Kaaz
