Cherry by Nico Walker

Cherry

Nico Walker

The author doesn't pull any punches in this tell-it-like-it-is dramatic modern American tale. The destructive nature of addiction is eye-opening in its candidness, so too the horror of warfare which is told with equal honesty. Narrated with passion and integrity, I found this book immersing, if a little disturbing in places.

Extract

And we got off. The heroin was good. Very good. Not stepped-all-over like the dope we were accustomed to buying, the dope we were accustomed to selling our souls for.
