From David Carr (19562015), the undeniably brilliant and dogged journalist (Entertainment Weekly) and author of the instant New York Times bestseller that the Chicago Sun-Times called a compelling tale of drug abuse, despair, and, finally, hope.

Do we remember only the stories we can live with? The ones that make us look good in the rearview mirror? In The Night of the Gun, David Carr redefines memoir with the revelatory story of his years as an addict and chronicles his journey from crack-house regular to regular columnist for The New York Times. Built on sixty videotaped interviews, legal and medical records, and three years of reporting, The Night of the Gun is a ferocious tale that uses the tools of journalism to fact-check the past. Carrs investigation of his own history reveals that his odyssey through addiction, recovery, cancer, and life as a single parent was far more harrowingand, in the end, more miraculousthan he allowed himself to remember.

Fierce, gritty, and remarkable, The Night of the Gun is an odyssey youll find hard to forget (People).
