Steven Martin's OPIUM FIEND in The New Yorker's "Talk of the Town"


In the June 25th issue of The New Yorker, staff writer Nick Paumgarten speaks with Steven Martin, whose memoir OPIUM FIEND:  A 21st Century Slave to a 19th Century Addiction is being published by Susanna Porter at Random House next week, about how he came to be the global expert on opium-smoking paraphernalia.   For the larger story, you'll have to read the book.
