“The Diary Of A Drug Fiend” by Aleister Crowley
This is a true story…it is a terrible story, but it is also a story of hope and of beauty. This book tells the story of young Peter Pendragon and his lover Louise Laleham, and their adventures traveling through Europe in a cocaine and heroin haze. The bohemian couple’s binges produce visions and poetic prophecies, but when their supply inevitably runs dry, they find themselves faced with the reality of their drug addiction. Through the guidance of King Lamus, a master adept, they use the application of practical magick to free themselves from addiction. Released as his first published novel in 1922 and dubbed a “book for burning” by the papers of the time, this book reveals the poet, the lover, and the profound adept that was Aleister Crowley. 368 pages.
