Description

In his bestselling memoir Tweak, Nic Sheff took readers on an emotionally gripping roller-coaster ride through his days as an addict. Now in this powerful follow-up about his continued efforts to stay clean, Nic writes candidly about eye-opening stays at rehab centers, devastating relapses, and hard-won realizations about what it means to be a young person living with addiction.

Tweak and Beautiful Boy, his father's memoir about him, are the basis of the upcoming film Beautiful Boy, starring Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet.

Praise For We All Fall Down: Living with Addiction

"Nic Sheff captures the insidious, almost vampiric mind-set of an addict who shrinks from any form of light. This book has more in common with Kafka than any recovery memoir I've read."
-Mary Karr, New York Times bestselling author of Lit and The Liars' Club

"Sheff's journey, like his writing, is raw and compelling, heartbreaking and witty. An honest and gracious reflection about the challenges of recovery."
-Rachel Sontag, author of House Rules: A Memoir
