OPIUM FIEND: A 21st Century Slave to a 19th Century Addiction Published

Steven Martin's singular memoir (see advance praise) was published by Villard/Random House yesterday, and Austin's favorite bookstore since 1970, BookPeople, has posted a Q&A with Steven on their site.  Canada's weekly current affairs magazine Maclean's favorably reviewed the book on Friday, and io9 excerpted it yesterday, calling it "a kind of alternate history, where addictions of the past erupt into the present unexpectedly."

Atlanta's AM 1690 aired a terrific two-part conversation between David Lewis and the author yesterday.
