'A message to my Family' by Stuart J Cole. is a book that explores the live of an x alcoholic and drug addict. If anything like this affects your life it's worth a read.

Eating Smoke: One Man's Descent into Drug Psychosis in Hong Kong's Triad Heartland

. . . exemplary pacing, completely engaging tone, wealth of winning detail. Thrall uses such verve, enthusiasm and faultless comic timing that it is hard not to be swept along. China Morning Post

Ashley Blake, Shining Bright Lights in Dark Places, a really excellent read, charting the fall from grace of a former TV presenter, and leaves you asking the question, 'what would you do?'

Don't Stop the Carnival by Herman Wouk. The main character, Norman Paperman buys a hotel on a Carribbean island in hopes of earning an income while living the dream. To say things go wrong would be an understatement - one very funny book.

Try "The Quiet Australians Saints and Sinners" certainly different, unique and a bloody good read....heart breaking, sad, stoic, enlightening and an expose' on the corrupt Vietnamese.

Try 'The Terror of Living' by Urban Waite, a new author. If you liked both the book and film of 'No Country for Old Men' then this is your sort of book - a brilliant debut novel, highly recommended.

Not really biography, though perhaps an auto-b & cracking read none the less.
Ballantine: Richard's Bicycle Book ISBN-10: 0330267663.
The 1979 edition is actually a tad better than the '83.

Yes Ashley Blake, Shining Bright Lights in Dark Places, its an excellent read, its certainly not boring, keeping you gripped to the end. It covers his prison diaries. It really is an Autobiography with a twist. I couldn't put it down. It also begs the question 'what would you do?'

Notes from the Firehouse is another good read. It's a collection of short stories. One involves extricating a small dog from a snowblower, there are some emotional rescue stories and insane antics by the firehouse inmates. The author calls it the Cracker Factory.
