7:30 PM – Stephen Elliott: The Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism, and Murder
Elliott Bay Book Co.
“The Adderall Diaries begins like the ocean, seemingly able to take in everything—prize fights to Paris Hilton—until the ocean forms into a river, making its way through unmapped territories—a murder, an absent father—and finally this river is stilled into one precious teardrop. Stephen Elliott is one of those ‘people who keep searching when everything is dark’ – I don’t know a more hauntingly fearless writer, and this is an immediate, visceral, and ultimately beautiful book.” – Nick Flynn. “You don’t just read The Adderall Diaries, you fall right into them … It’s a brilliant book.” – Roddy Doyle
