Confessions of an English Opium Eater

£4.99

We all know that some of the most creative work in recent times has been produced by people totally off their faces, but did you know it can be said that Thomas De Quincey paved the way for artists with addictions? Describing in great detail the hallucinations and insomnia he experienced while on an extended laudanum binge, it paints a vivid picture of his experiences with opiates - so you don't have to go through it yourself.
