Thanks for these suggestions. And for the kind words. Really.
I will do some looking into them. I agree that the phenomenon of addiction itself is less interesting to me, than, frankly, what it means in a spiritual life, on the ground, so to speak. This is why so few of the "tell all" memoirs about addiction are interesting. They just relay the "drunkalogue" and never get to the deep material of what it does to the spirit. And, even when they're not sheer frauds, like whatisnames--James Frey's--they're just not substantive.
Please, keep the ideas coming!
