Quotes

  • “The Adderall Diaries should be a lurid work…yet this is no potboiler, but a serious literary work designed to make you see the world as you’ve never quite seen it before.”

    - Washington Post
  • “The Adderall Diaries is neither a Kerouac-like brag nor an Oprah-ready, James Frey–style record of suffering and recovery. Rather, it is its own weird hybrid, a painfully honest and meticulously crafted memoir wrapped around a true-crime story that gets to the very essence of its time and place.”

    - Los Angeles Times
  • “Elliott may be writing under the influence, but it’s the influence of genius.”

    - Vanity Fair
  • “Elliott’s superb, sprawling meta-memoir might be just what the genre needs to salvage it from the legacy of James Frey.”

    - Time Out New York
  • “An endlessly fascinating memoir by a profoundly courageous writer…Despite the luridness of the subject matter, the author creates a refined, beautiful work of art. His themes—seemingly crime, murder, drugs, and sadomasochistic sex—actually encapsulate the nature of truth, self, love, and memory, and the limits of art to get at them all. Deserves a place on the shelf next to such classics of uninhibited American introspection as On the Road and A Fan’s Notes.”

    - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
  • “Searing…Elliott remains intently curious and utterly devoted to the healing alchemy of clear, lacerating language…With astute insights into anger, despair, drug use, sadomasochism, and the elusiveness of love and justice, Elliott is a poet of pain.”
