The Conundrum that is Addiction
There are many good books about addiction, but these two are truly special. Sigrid Rausing’s Mayhem is a painfully honest account of her brother Hans’s struggle with addiction and the nightmarish events surrounding his wife Eva’s death in 2012. Louisa Young’s You Left Early is an unflinching and elegiac memoir of her turbulent love affair with Robert Lockhart, who was eventually killed by his ferocious alcoholism.
