Description



About the Book



From the scion of Hollywood royalty--son of Michael Douglas, grandson of Kirk Douglas--comes a moving, often shocking, ultimately inspiring memoir detailing his struggle to regain his dignity, humanity, and place in society after many years of drug abuse and almost eight years in prison.in prison.



Book Synopsis



On the surface, Cameron Douglas had everything: descended from Hollywood royalty (son of Michael Douglas, grandson of Kirk Douglas), he was born into a life of wealth, privilege, and comfort. But by the age of thirty, he had become a drug addict, a thief, and--after a DEA drug bust--a convicted drug dealer sentenced to five years in prison, with another five years added while he was incarcerated.

Through supreme willpower, a belief in himself, and a steely desire to alter his life's path, Douglas began to reverse his trajectory, to understand and deal with the psychological turmoil that tormented him for years, and to prepare for what would be a profoundly challenging but successful reentry into society at large.

A brutally raw and honest memoir, Long Way Home is a powerful story of one man's descent into the depths of addiction and self-destruction--and his successful renewal of family ties that had become almost irreparably frayed.



Review Quotes



"Frank, compelling, at times heartbreaking, and ultimately triumphant." --Variety

Gripping. --Rolling Stone

"Family permeates Douglas's book. . . . Long Way Home is [an] unsparing account of how he pursued what he calls his 'demented death wish, ' chasing addictions to heroin and liquid cocaine, shaking off rehabs and forcible interventions, and nearly getting himself killed numerous times." --The New York Times
