The trouble with a talented writer writing about a real person with pain, hopelessness, despair, bad choices, terrifying experiences, bad people, risky behaviors, and all the rest, is that it is terribly compelling as a story. He makes you live in it. It may be his fractal life, but it is you, the reader, who is the one out of control. As a form of entertainment, it may be the same as cutting yourself to make you feel better, but by golly, you will read it to the last word. There are even times you will wonder about what kind of person you are when you find parts funny, even though you know they really are.
Raw. Absurd. Go ahead and read it. The worst that will happen is that you will wonder how this man ended up with more friends and more life than most, despite the life he lives. If he is a liar, he is an entertaining liar.
