The L.A. Diaries

by James Brown - £12.99  Bloomsbury Publishing (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747574668 | ISBN 10: 0747574669

James Brown worked as a successful Hollywood screenwriter and would drive the freeways of Los Angeles from meeting to meeting with movie executives. But he carried a terrible, destructive secret. He was unable to function without stopping off in a bar for just one drink. Then one more. There was always an excuse.
 
His disturbed upbringing led to alcoholism from an early age and his future always loomed with the possibility of suicide, an option that too many others in his life had taken, Reaching breaking point, Brown had to decide whether to belive in fate, or to choose to live.
 
This unforgettable memoir is his chronicle of a brutal decline and search for redemption.

"Unflinchingly honest, beautifully written and utterly heartbreaking, 'The L.A. Diaries' is a haunting and powerful tale of love and loss."
