Beautiful Things Zusammenfassung

Beautiful Things: A Memoir Hunter Biden

A deeply moving memoir of addiction, loss, and survival. This is Hunter Biden's story of tragedy and trauma, and his journey to overcome it all.

'In his harrowing and compulsively readable memoir, Hunter Biden tells it all with a bravery that is both heartbreaking and quite gorgeous. He starts with a question: Where's Hunter? The answer is he's in this book, the good, the bad, and the beautiful.' Stephen King

When he was two years old, Hunter Biden was badly injured in a car accident that killed his mother and baby sister. In 2015, he suffered the devastating loss of his beloved big brother, Beau, who died of brain cancer at the age of 46. These hardships were compounded by the collapse of his marriage and a years-long battle with drug and alcohol addiction.

In Beautiful Things, Hunter recounts his descent into substance abuse and his tortuous path to sobriety. The story ends with where Hunter is today-a sober married man with a new baby, finally able to appreciate the beautiful things in life.

Beautiful Things Bewertungen

'A beautiful book by Biden. It is a sharply written account of what it is like to be at the same time enormously privileged and utterly wretched.' * The Times *
'Beautiful Things is so concise, so unflinching and propulsive, that outside of turning the pages and occasionally picking my jaw off the ground, I didn't move between the first page and the last.' -- Dave Eggers
'Hunter writes honestly and with courage about the collapse of his marriage, hurting his father, squandering cash and going on a crack-fuelled, cross-country odyssey.' * Sunday Telegraph *
'With disarming humility, Hunter's unflinching account lays bare both the sustaining power and hard limits of love and family.' -- Bill Clegg
'Mesmerising. A sizzling mess of grief, addiction, self-justification and misdirection. It's admirable - and also abominable.' * Sunday Times *
'Hunter Biden writes beautifully of almost unsurvivable loss, and the amazing grace of family love. He writes of his savage alcoholism and addiction with rare honesty, of his recovery with stunned gratitude, of broken hearts, resurrection, beautiful things.' -- Anne Lamott
'Devastating loss, an all-consuming crack addiction and what he really thinks of his father Joe - Hunter Biden doesn't hold back.' * Evening Standard *
'Biden transforms the Hollywood hills into a gothic wilderness, a suburb of hell where coyotes howl and nocturnal birds screech maledictions.' * Observer *
'A moving addiction memoir in its reflections on pain and grief, both poignant and sad.' * New Statesman *
