Renowned novelist James Brown's searing memoir is a wrenching yet often wry chronicle of loss and reaffirmation written in response to a life marked by alcohol and drug abuse; mental illness; economic hardship; and the suicides of his two siblings.

Harrowing, brutally honest, and no-holds-barred, The L.A. Diaries unveils Brown's struggle for survival, mining his perilous past to present the inspiring story of his redemption. Beautifully written, moving, and lined with dark humour, these twelve interconnected confessional chapters address personal failure; heartbreak; the trials of writing for Hollywood; and the life-shattering events that finally convinced him he must 'change or die'.

Industry Reviews

'Clear-eyed, unsentimental, necessarily self-indulgent. It invites comparison with Tobias Wolff's This Boy's Life and James Ellroy's various fictionalised essays on his mother's murder' Observer 'Uplifting, and life-affirming, even rather beautiful ... A darkly bright, hugely compassionate, and oddly redemptive story of loss and failure, guilt and addiction' Independent on Sunday 'You will never read a more incisive account of addiction' Glasgow Herald 'Unflinchingly honest, beautifully written and utterly heartbreaking, The L.A. Diaries is a haunting and powerful tale of love and loss' Ink
