Mike Doughty first came to prominence as the leader of the band Soul Coughing, then did an abrupt sonic left turn, much to the surprise of his audience, transforming into a solo performer of stark, dusky, but strangely hopeful tunes. He battled addiction, gave up fame when his old band was at the height of its popularity, and drove thousands of miles, alone, across America, with just an acoustic guitar.

His candid, hilarious, self-lacerating memoir, The Book of Drugs - featuring cameos by Redman, Ani DiFranco, the late Jeff Buckley, and others - is the story of his band's rise and bitter collapse, the haunted and darkly comical life of addiction, and the perhaps even weirder world of recovery.
