Tom gives an overview of the book:

American Junkie is the story of a musician and heroin dealer during the punk and grunge movements in Seattle. It's American. It’s human underground. Tom Hansen takes us non-stop into a land of desperate addicts, failed punk bands, and brushes with sad fame. It’s a story that takes us from the promise of a young life to the prison of a mattress, from budding musician to broken down junkie, and ultimately, a ride to a hospital for a six-month stay and a painful self-discovery that cuts down to the bone.
