"in telling the story of a codependent, her other great success is to humanise the addict"

The author currently lives in California, and her work has appeared in the New York Times, the New Republic and the Los Angeles Review of Books. She is a deft writer whose memoir reads like fiction – colourful details, elliptical dialogue, twists and turns, the relentless needs of the characters. Jen Beagin’s superb debut novel Pretend I’m Dead bears comparison, with both books telling the story of a woman whose life gets side-lined by other people’s addictions.
