Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man by Bill Clegg – Dedication

In Biography, Books, Horror, Psychology on June 25, 2010 at 8:15 am

Vogue Magazine just ran an article on Bill Clegg’s first novel. The story: crack and heartache.

Bill can mock a dorky corporateer in three quick words and tell a whole vibrant story in just sixteen, but he’ll keep you captivated through all 200+ pages of this novel. See Bill succeed (New York literary agent). See Bill slip and slide into drugs. Hang on to see the end.

We loved the way he shared his partner Noah’s heartache and sorrow and rage. It’ll tear you heart out. 😦

Bill Clegg dedicated Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man ~

For everyone still out there
