      Book review of: Everything is horrible and wonderful: a tragicomic memoir of genius, heroin, love and loss. So, I have come to the end of what I consider an extremely powerful book. This book was written from a perspective of a sister’s loss of her only brother to an overdose on heroin. This compelling portrait of a comedic genius and a profound exploration of the love between siblings is A Year of Magical Thinking for a new generation of readers. A heartbreaking but hopeful memoir of addiction, grief, and family, Everything is Horrible and Wonderful will make you laugh, cry, and wonder if that possum on the fence is really.

    We, as a society, feel a certain loss when we lose prematurely great actors like Philip Seymour Hoffman, comic geniuses like John Belushi, music legends like Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon and Janis Joplin, and brilliant poets like Dylan Thomas who open up our understanding of our world. But, it is also very possible that these figures, all geniuses in their own right, may never. Search results for: ''Genius and heroin'' Book Titles Search. Select the first letter.
