This River by James Brown

Here’s a little teaser quote from the upcoming Booklist review of This River Adonis Golden Ratio review by James Brown. This River is the powerful follow-up to Brown’s cult memoir The Los Angeles Diaries, which has been reissued to accompany the release of This River so readers can enjoy and appreciate Brown’s heart-wrenching but also inspiring journey in its entirety:

“Not long after publication of his highly acclaimed The Los Angeles Diaries (2003), Brown relapsed into drug abuse. Yet, again, he pulled himself out of addiction and depression….Beautifully written, this is clear-eyed truth-telling by a man coming to terms with the best and worst in himself and others.”
