From the cow fields of Connecticut to the streets of San Francisco, Joe Clifford’s Junkie Love traverses the lost highways of America, down the rocky roads of mental illness to the dead ends of addiction. Based on Clifford’s own harrowing experience with drugs as a rock ’n’ roll wannabe in the 1990s, the book draws on the best of Kerouac & the Beats, injecting a heavy dose of pulp fiction as it threads a rollicking narrative through a doomed love triangle, lit up by the many strange characters he meets along the way. Part road story, part resurrection tale, Junkie Love finds a way to laugh in one’s darkest hour, while never abandoning its heart in search of a home. This second edition includes a Foreword by Jerry Stahl (Permanent Midnight) and an updated Author's Note by the author.

Riveting - Hard to Put Down...just WOW!

How to begin??? WOW! This story is a hard read/listen and even harder to put down!!! Incredibly well written and expertly narrated by Timothy McKean. Junkie Love is not the typical romantic love story but a hard-core look at life thru the eyes of an addict. Their relationships with addiction, those they love, those who love them, and everyone in-between, including themselves. I appreciate Joe Clifford’s sharing his personal story, raw, gut-wrenching and unforgiving, I needed to hear it…we ALL need to hear it! My eyes have been opened to the enormous involvedness of addiction and my heart aches for all who are touched by it.

I recommend this book to absolutely everyone…
