    Uncomfortably humorous Strangely uplifting Beautifully written It s hard to put down, much like drug addiction.

    A masterpiece in the sphere of brutally honest examinations of an addiction to drink and drugs The idea of addiction as identity, or as a cover for identity, is exhaustingly and movingly explored, and SPOILER there s no redemption in the final pages Giving up booze is music journalist Doran s biggest struggle, but then it s followed by facing up to his addictions to illegal narcotics, medication and as a booze substitute sugar and caffeine, with all the physical and mental illness thrown A masterpiece in the sphere of brutally honest examinations of an addiction to drink and drugs The idea of addiction as identity, or as a cover for identity, is exhaustingly and movingly explored, and SPOILER there s no redemption in the final pages Giving up booze is music journalist Doran s biggest struggle, but then it s followed by facing up to his addictions to illegal narcotics, medication and as a booze substitute sugar and caffeine, with all the physical and mental illness thrown in as side effects of weaning yourself off things that the body s become used to.Like all the best books, it s about death Either looking forward to it, facing up to it, resigning yourself to it, narrowly avoiding it, being freaked out by the confrontation with it like the time a boy is run over by a bus, the body lands at Doran s feet, and he steps over it and goes to the pub for five pints to cope with what s just happened , or finally reaching a point where you can sometimes face it down It should have a sticker on saying something like Compelling, brilliant, addictive not being funny it was hard to put down, and I only stopped reading when I fell asleep late

    Bloody brilliant book This is an autobiography detailing a life of alcoholism, drug abuse, and poor mental health, but one that s about as far from a misery memoir as you can imagine Doran writes wonderfully, with overblown, hilarious, baroque metaphors, and anecdotes that make you laugh while cringing It is chock full of quotable lines, and worth reading if only to get the low down on Mick Hucknall s boots, pants and olive oil And it s a redemptive tale after years of alcoholism, Doran fi Bloody brilliant book This is an autobiography detailing a life of alcoholism, drug abuse, and poor mental health, but one that s about as far from a misery memoir as you can imagine Doran writes wonderfully, with overblown, hilarious, baroque metaphors, and anecdotes that make you laugh while cringing It is chock full of quotable lines, and worth reading if only to get the low down on Mick Hucknall s boots, pants and olive oil And it s a redemptive tale after years of alcoholism, Doran finally and suddenly kicks the booze and instead pours his manic eneries into online music magazine The Quietus I couldn t be happier for him

    A frank and very funny memoir about alcoholism and drug addiction, weird music, mental illness and masculinity from the co editor of The Quietus one of my favourite music websites I think a lot of people could benefit from reading his open discussion of hard drug and alcohol use and how he managed to get clean Plus there are some great music recommendations.


  6. says:

    Actually abandoned this halfway through I enjoy his music writing but I found this tedious.


  7. says:

    Very readable some good anecdotes.

    Excellent portrayal of the straddle between loving and loathing Northern roots, a chronic addiction and anxiety whilst being drole, erudite and never maudlin I loved it Not a jolly read, but definitely made of strong Northern wit John Doran is a natural writer, part pub anecdotal, part philosophical musings and a factory worker Perfect This book struck me hard and made me understand chronic addiction that loved ones have had with a great depth of understanding.
