              Elegantly constructed, searingly honest, and impossible to put down. Andrew Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon, winner of the National Book Award There are moments when I suddenly realize that I m a nice boy from Iowa who is entirely comfortable sitting in a room of freaks. So ...begins Patrick Moore s unforgettable account of life as a crystal meth addict a tweaker. Like a wild ride down Alice s rabbit hole with a guide who is darkly funny and heartbreakingly honest, Tweaked chronicles a twenty-year trip that stretches from Moore s lonely childhood in Iowa with his grandmother, Zelma an alcoholic artist who, when loaded, turns frozen food into crafts projects to the day he sits, naked, in a Los Angeles rental, hallucinating about psycho-robbers while talking to a possum he s sure is God. Along the way, there are acid trips at the V.F.W., Dexetrim study halls with his Bad Girl Posse in the seventies, teeth-grinding nights of dancing and anonymous sex in New York City s hottest eighties clubs, taking pictures of Andy Warhol, losing friends and lovers, and navigating a Byzantine underworld of cookers, users, club kids, dealers, and colorful characters as intense as the drug itself. There is Lee, the glamorous, outre bad boy with a devastating wit and a taste for danger; Tony, the tweaker who likes to remove his eyebrows; Ding-Dong, the Depends-wearing, nearly blind housemate; Hisako, the artist and squatter with an impenetrable Japanese accent and a fondness for hot plate cooking; Mother Judy, the tough, butch rehab counselor who takes no prisoners, and countless others on the road from crystal meth hell to eventual sobriety. Candid, gripping, and ultimately triumphant, Tweaked is that rarest of memoirs a tale so vivid and personal in the telling it feels like fiction, but every word is true. Devastating Moore writes fearlessly. --The Washington Post

              Thirteen-year-old Jesse leads a pretty boring life in just about the most boring place in the universe -- otherwise known as Ida, Texas. She cannot forget the death of her baby brother seven years ago, and how she just couldn't pray for him when he was sick. She never talks about... it though, not even to her best friend, which is something she doesn't have, anyway. But all that changes when Roxanne moves into the trailer next door. Thirty years old, with her fake fur coat, wild red hair, and romantic notions, Roxanne is a revelation to Jesse. Why has she moved to Ida, of all places? Their growing friendship will change Jesse's life, giving her back a vision of hope beyond the mundane world around her. From the Hardcover edition.
