About “My Fair Junkie: A Memoir of Getting Dirty and Staying Clean”:
About Amy Dresner (Courtesy of Publisher):
Growing up in Beverly Hills, the only child of a comedy writer and a fashion designer, Amy Dresner believed that everything was always funny and turned out right. And she needed to believe it. If you could snort it, smoke it, shoot it, or have sex with it, she did. It was never her dream to become an Olympic athlete of self-destruction, but that’s what happened.
MY FAIR JUNKIE is the shameless, hilarious, and unfortunately–to Amy–true account of it all. A safari through the wild world of addiction, it’s a raucous, inspiring story of redemption, and ultimately an insightful tale of courage and metamorphosis.
