Editorial Reviews

Review

'A thoughtful, sometimes brutally honest account. If you've ever wondered why young people take drugs, read The Agony of Ecstasy.'
(Oxford Times)

'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.'
(Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
