This is an inspiring and uplifting book about finding infinite value in the most intense and painful experience of profound loss. --Sandie Shaw, Singer
If the purpose of personal narratives is to make sense out of one s life then Diane Esguerra s excellent memoir will I suspect present not only an invaluable insight into how telling your story may save you from it, but also achieve redemptive potential for all those who have suffered a similar bereavement. Above all Junkie Buddha: A Journey demonstrates how the healing process is to pass from the narration of trauma as hurt feelings into the narration of trauma as an experience of deep significance. --Marina Cantacuzino, Journalist, Huffington Post
I could not put this gripping travel memoir down. What a refreshing change from the endless stream of ghost-written celebrity outpourings! Junkie Buddha: A Journey is moving and enlightening. It deserves the widest possible readership. --Julia Stephenson, Author

I have read many books about grief - this is the best - intelligently written in an understated but highly moving way.
Whether you read this to understand the effects of heroin, the grief and loss of a loved one, a travel book or just as a great read you will not be disappointed.
Probably, like me, you will have tears rolling down your cheeks but they will be tears of hope as well as sadness.
This is an important book.
I found it hard to put this down, to the extent that journeys on public transport became longer as i would get off a train and sit on a bench because i couldn't stop reading.
The subject matter is sometimes difficult, but the pages turn easily. I am usually a very slow reader with books lasting me months at a time, but not this one.
One of those books that gets into you and stays in you, because it can make you see things that you already thought you'd made your mind up about differently.
