books that look worth reading

I just read a New York Times review of Bill Clegg’s book, Portrait of an Addict As a Young Man. It’s a memoir about Clegg’s addiction to cocaine. It sounds well worth the read! I’m interested not just because of the review, but because Clegg’s title is such an interesting allusion to James Joyce’s semi autobiographical work Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man.
