Paperback Description:
Machiavelli was my tutor, Donald Goines my father figure.
—Tupac Shakur

The true Black voice of his generation, Donald Goines wrote novels that nailed the harsh realities of the urban experience deep into the psyche of today’s hip hop culture, influencing major artists from Jay-Z and 50 Cent to Nas and Ghostface Killah. Dopefiend is Goines’ classic descent into the junkie’s harrowing nightmare…

Teddy finally got the girl of his dreams. Together, Teddy and Terry filled people with admiration wherever they went. Young, gifted, and black, the future was theirs for the taking. But Teddy had a small little addiction. Then Terry had a taste. Then life took a wrong turn into the darkest, vilest back alleys. Drawing from years of his own addiction to heroin, Goines holds nothing back in this graphic, unflinching tale of lives destroyed by drugs. Each page tells it like it is—the whole truth and nothing but the truth—which keeps you coming back for more.
