'A thoughtful, sometimes brutally honest account. If you've ever wondered why young people take drugs, read The Agony of Ecstasy.'
'in the tradition of literary drug-taking which stretches from Thomas de Quincey to Aldous Huxley and Hunter S. Thompson. It screams of teenage angst and the pressures to be cool, beautiful and self-possesed.'
