This startling and compelling memoir details Chris Shulgan's addiction to crack, which he turned to during his wife's pregnancy with their first child. In chronicling his battle with this addiction, the author comes to understand that his drug problem was his way of avoiding the responsibilities of adulthood. Woven through his account of the restless nights that led him to such an extreme and destructive form of escape is an exploration of his own and society's ideas of fatherhood and manhood. It is his own shocking story that drives the book, however: that of a man living a seemingly normal life with a dark secret at its heart.
