Nic Sheff and his father David Sheff captured a nation of readers with their bestselling memoirs, Tweak and Beautiful Boy. These books explore teen drug addiction from two different point-of-views: a father's and a son's. They will both be the basis of the upcoming film Beautiful Boy, starring Steve Carell and Timothï¿½e Chalamet. Nic currently lives in Los Angeles, California, and writes for TV, including for the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.
"Nic Sheff captures the insidious, almost vampiric mind-set of an addict who shrinks from any form of light. This book has more in common with Kafka than any recovery memoir I've read."--Mary Karr, "New York Times "bestselling author of "Lit "and "The Liars' Club" "Sheff's journey, like his writing, is raw and compelling, heartbreaking and witty. An honest and gracious reflection about the challenges of recovery."--Rachel Sontag, author of "House Rules: A Memoir"
