TEENAGE DEGENERATE A Memoir That Explores the Depths of Methamphetamine and Drug Addiction

by | Read by Sean Patrick Hopkins

Biography & Memoir • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrator Sean Hopkins presents Sterling's harrowing account of his addiction to crystal methamphetamine and his subsequent recovery. Hopkins speaks straightforwardly as Sterling neither makes excuses nor blames others as he describes some of the physical costs of addiction, including meth sores, bloody teeth, and painful gums. The people in his circle are distinct, and it's heartbreaking to hear how often they simply disappear. Listeners won't be surprised when Sterling begins dealing drugs, narrowly avoiding arrest and maintaining a conscience (unlike his buddies) about such acts as shooting-up in a church. References to his favorite music and to many famous deceased users add atmosphere and context. It's difficult to hear Sterling's graphic descriptions, but listeners will want to know what happens next in this cautionary tale. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2017]
