Book Review: The Bipolar Addict: Drinks, Drugs, Delirium, & Why Sober is The New Cool

Conor Bezane’s music-infused memoir looks at the world of manic depression plus addiction. As a recovering addict with bipolar disorder, Bezane knows exactly what it’s like to have heavenly highs and miserable lows, and his book offers a promise of sobriety and the triumph of stability for those who dwell in the darkest corners of their mind. States Bezane: “We are punks. We are poets. Musicians and artists. Professionals and intellectuals. We are drunk. High. Manic. Depressed. We almost died. And now… we are stable and sober.”
