Junkie Love (2001) READ ONLINE FREE book by Phil Shoenfelt in EPUB,TXT.

I highly recommend both book and the authors music. If this book suffers through anything it's only in its bad timing at appearing after such an overrated book as Trainspotting. Phil Shoenfelt is currently in the process of finding a publisher for his third book, and has two musical projects based in the Czech Republic. Junkie Love shoots straight frm the gut, puts the picture in your face, what a junkie faces from moment to moment, through each night, through each day. Instead of turning to politics or religion, they embark on a course of self-destructive sex and manically obsessive drug abuse, a journey to the end of the night from which many do not return. Focusing on the psycho-pathology of addiction, it takes a look at what happens when hope disappears and hedonism turns to despair and self-loathing.

The characters in this tale a A nice, nasty read. Phil Shoenfelt was born in Bradford, England, in December 1952. As they get more and more twisted up in their search, their emptiness and hollow existence becomes more and more apparent. His descriptions of drug culture — the trade on the streets and in the swirling squats behind closed doors — are vivid and at times disturbing. A trenchant, cautionary tale that successfully avoids the self-righteous tone of the 'recovered'. A hinterland of rundown squats, petty crime and hard drugs. Fatal Shore pokračovali v koncertní činnosti, ale v červnu 2008 odehráli svůj poslední koncert v klubu Kino v rakouském Ebensee.

Roku 2009 Bruno po dlouhém a statečném boji zemřel a Shoenfelt s Hughesem se rozhodli s kapelou nepokračovat. With Southern Cross he recorded by now four albums Blue Highway, Dead Flowers For Alice, 'Ecstatic and Paranoia. Will Self A fine, gutsy, spare rendering of the drug underworld. Largely autobiographical and leavened with irony and perverse humor, Junkie Love follows the protagonist into the heart of this morass to the point where corruption and dissipation coalesce into something approaching transcendence. When you're a junkie all that really matters is the next fix and how to get it.

Ultimately though, what's revealed is an underlying compassion for the characters in Junkie Love, their helplessness in the face of their obsessions, and their misguided, naked need for transcendence and love. Focusing on the psycho-pathology of addiction, it takes a look at what happens when hope disappears and hedonism turns to despair and self-loathing. Shoenfelt brilliantly sucked me into that world and spit me out without ever making me claustrophobic. V roce 2004 Adams onemocněl, byla u něj diagnostikována rakovina tlustého střeva. I enjoyed it a lot.

Instead of turning to politics or religion, they embark on a course of self-destructive sex and manically obsessive drug abuse, a journey to the end of the night from which many do not return. Not in the grotesquely tainted style of an Irving Welsh but with far greater purity. I take a look at this syndrome and try to understand it in the light of my own experience. During their time in the underworld, he and his girlfriend Cissy learnt painful, strange things about addiction and identity, and he enunciates them beautifully in this heavy little book. Largely autobiographical and leavened with irony and perverse humor, Junkie Love follows the protagonist into the heart of this morass to the point where corruption and dissipation coalesce into something approaching transcendence. The characters in this tale are rootless and adrift, dislocated from their pasts with no belief in the aims and aspirations of a materialistic society.

Junkie Love poprvé vyšla v českém překladu jako Feťácká láska. He also has a great sense of humor; the ability to laugh at himself and others; also sympathize with them. Though the whole book is very gloomy, it is still an engrossing read that completely sucks you in, until you are living the hopeless life of this committed addict. A very dark and bleak account of hopeless love and heroin addiction, set in London. Within a span of a month I met two people who had written books with the same title: this one is an autobiographical short novel by an Englishman that I met in Prague; the other is a memoir written by American living in San Francisco that I met in Minnesota all of which sounds like a tantalizing prospect for a dual review. They try harder and harder to fill it with heroin.

There's an elitism, a cynicism and a coldness that is disturbing. Well-written, moves quickly, lots of great insight into the world of the junkie. V této době kapela předskakovala The Fall na dvou jejich britských turné. Shoenfelt brings reason and a strong literary voice to the usually hip genre of the drug novel. It's possible that there is such a thing as genetic pre-disposition to one type of addiction or another, whether cigarettes, alcohol, cocaine or heroin.
