By now, loyal readers know that I am ADDICTED to shows about drug addicts. I can't even explain it- I just am. So color me BEYOND HYPED when two people recommended the book, Beautiful Boy by David Sheff, to me- a memoir written by the father of a meth addict. WOO LAWD this book held on to my soul from beginning to end! On this episode of Monday Musings, Mari (http://confesionesdelaloca.blogspot.com/) and I talk about this frustratingly captivating piece of literature and the drug addiction that led to its creation. Why do addicts even begin taking drugs? How do you deal with an addict in your family? What can society do, if anything, to prevent anymore families from suffering what the Sheff family suffered? Tune in to add your two cents!
