“Full Disclosure: Amy Dresner is the prodigal daughter of one of my oldest and dearest friends. And Full Disclosure would be an acceptable alternate title for My Fair Junkie, her chronicle of her journey to hell and back, a round trip she’s made way too many times. Because Amy is who she is, the story she tells is hysterically funny at one moment and utterly harrowing the next—and often manages to be both those things at once.”Lawrence Block, award winning crime-writer, author of “The Sins of the Fathers” and more books and short stories than I can name.
