"Marnell recounts parties and drugs and sex in writing that mirrors the experience of being on drugs - sometimes fizzing ... and, just as often, cold and blunt and brutal" * Guardian * "A gifted memoirist ... [She displays] a willingness to tell unflattering truths about herself that reminded me of Elizabeth Wurtzel, author of Prozac Nation" * New York Times Magazine * "Brims with all the intoxicating intrigue of a thriller and yet all the sobering pathos of a gifted writer's true-life journey to recover her former health, happiness, ambitions and identity." * Harper's Bazaar * "With her divisive mix of ego, honesty, sordidness and humor, Ms. Marnell is becoming the latest online lightning rod" * Wall Street Journal * "Challenging ... captivating and controversial" * The Atlantic Wire *
