HOW TO STOP TIME Heroin from A to Z, Marlowe, Ann
2 Marlowe, Ann HOW TO STOP TIME Heroin from A to Z
New york Basic Books 1999 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
This the author's first book. This book is in Fine condition and has a Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. "Cultural criticism masquerading as a heroin memoir masquerading as a dictionary, how to stop time looks at American society through the lens of heroin use. Weaving personal history with aphorisms and analysis, Ann Marlowe is unsparing in her exploration of her, and society's, obsession with heroin addiction. This is no glamorization of heroin chic, no cautionary tale about the irresisable power of the drug, no cliched memoir of degradation and ecstasy. Instead, Marlowe delves beneath the surface of addiction, offering many startling insights into the nature of nostalgia and the love of predictable experience on the one hand and craving the validation of danger on the other."

Battling the Wolves of Society The Narcotic Evil, Rowell, Earl Albert
3 Rowell, Earl Albert Battling the Wolves of Society The Narcotic Evil
Mountain View, Ca Pacific Press Publishing Association 1929 1st Edition; 1st Printing Stapled wraps Good with No dust jacket as issued 
This booklet is in Good only condition and was issued in stapled wraps, without a dust jacket. The booklet is quite fragile and made up of brittle highly acidic paper. The spine of the booklet has been taped by a previous owner, as are portions of the rear cover. The text pages are complete, with the exception of the last three pages and are heavily toned and somewhat delicate. The last three pages of text and the rear cover have noticeable chips missing, however, the chips do not interfer with the text. This booklet is quite scarce. " America has her evils. They are rampant everywhere; petty crimes, serious crimes, crimes unnamable, meet eye and ear continually.... Mighty contributors to this state of things are booze, bootleggers, cigarettes, and greed. But worse than booze in all its crooked combinations, a thousand times worse, is dope - opium, morphine, heroin, cocaine, Indian hemp, and lesser narcotics. And from the use of these every crime in the calendar of crime is committed that the enslaved victims may secure more dope."
