A weird current pulses through this book. The tale of a heroin deal gone very bad, it’s also a merciless picture of America at the ragged end of the Vietnam era. John Converse is a journalist preparing to head home from Saigon when he’s persuaded to join a dope-smuggling scheme. Once back in California, he’s ambushed by a pair of ex-cons in the service of a corrupt federal drug agent who wants to pocket the drugs. #books
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir by Elizabeth Wurtzel that should be read. Not only because it is important to understand about the drug but also because it is utterly shocking in regard to the practices of the the Chemical Companies.....really if you have ever been on antidepressants or are thinking about it, read this book first.
