Fiction. JUNKIE LOVE, set in Camden Town, London, during the late 1980s, is a study of addiction and loss, a nihilistic love story for the blank generation. Focusing on the psycho-pathology of addiction, it takes a look at what happens when hope disappears and hedonism turns to despair and loathing. Largely autobiographical and leavened with irony and perverse humor, JUNKIE LOVE "shoots straight from the gut, puts the picture in your face, what a junkie faces from moment to moment, through each day"-Ruth Weiss. With illustrations by Jolana Izbicka.
