Confessions Of An English Opium-Eater and Literary Reminiscences (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by Thomas De Quincey digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In this haunting autobiography, De Quincey describes the pleasures and pains of his addiction to opium, the surreal visions and hallucinations that accompanied his nocturnal wanderings through London, and the despair, nightmares, and paranoia he suffered. First published in 1821, this remarkable volume paved the way for later generations of literary drug users. Also includes "Suspiria de Profundis," "The English Mail-Coach," and his "Literary Reminiscences" of Lamb, Coleridge, and Wordsworth.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“I love how this book left me feeling. True story (a biography per se) of a guy who chose the drug path, and while to anyone else that would be the obvious bad decision, you got to see this man live daily life like this, and form relationships with others who lived their lives on the bad side of the tracks. Parts are very sad, but most leave you just reflecting on your own life and your own decisions. Easily one of my very favorite books.”
