Honest, raw and emotional memoir of a top Hollywood screenwriter coping with appalling addiction.
Renowned novelist James Brown's searing memoir is a wrenching, yet often funny chronicle of loss and reaffirmation written in response to a life marked by alcohol and drug abuse; mental illness; economic hardship; and the suicides of his two siblings.
Harrowing, brutally honest and no-holds-barred, 'The Los Angeles Diaries' unveils Brown's struggle for survival, mining his perilous past to present the inspiring story of his redemption. Beautifully written, moving and lined with dark humour, these 12 interconnected confessional chapters address personal failure; heartbreak; the trials of writing for Hollywood; and the life-shattering events that finally convinced him he must "change or die".
