The Night of the Gun: A reporter investigates the darkest story of his life. His own., David Carr
The famed and brilliant New York Times journalist takes a journalistic approach to the drug memoir genre. Instead of relying on his hazy memories of his crack addiction — which he admits is full of holes as a result of his drug use — he instead begins to investigate the lost years of his life. It's both a dive into personal history and a tale of redemption, and the result is a searing, ferocious look at addiction and recovery told through Carr's graceful and eloquent prose.
