Hero of the Underground (w/ Jason Peter)

Hero of the Underground [2008]

Hero of the Underground is the riveting New York Times bestseller.

I wasn’t afraid of death. 

How could I be? I lived under death’s shadow every day. When you swallow sixty Vicodin, twenty sleeping pills, drink a bottle of vodka, and still survive, a certain sense of invulnerability stays with you.

When you continually use drugs with the kind of reckless determination that I did, the limit to how much heroin or crack you can ingest is not defined by dollar amounts but by the amounts your body can withstand without experiencing a seizure or respiratory failure. . . . 

I found myself contemplating death again. Only this time I wasn’t going to leave it to chance. I was going to buy a gun, load the thing, place the barrel in my mouth, and blow my fucking brains out.

And all—

of my problems—

would be—

solved.

– Jerry Stahl, author of Permanent Midnight

“Compelling brutality . . . it’s nasty. And well worth the read.”
