More, Now, Again: A Memoir of Addiction, Elizabeth Wurtzel
Wutzel became a literary celebrity at 26 after the publication of her controversial memoir Prozac Nation. Her next book, Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women, only raised her profile four years later. Soon she was a starlet in the New York book world — which was as druggy as the rock 'n' roll world of the Sunset Strip. Fleeing the city to work on her proposed new book (and to escape a burgeoning heroin addiction), Wurtzel became addicted to Ritalin and obsessed with tweezing as she struggled to maintain her creative process. The result is More, Now, Again: a wild ride into one writer's madness as she teeters toward the brink.
