"What I learned, once again, was that working in television without hard narcotics was absolutely laughable."
Jerry Stahl is a writer who also dabbled in pornography and McDonald's. His best known gig is writing for 80s TV shows like "Alf" and "Moonlighting." His second best known gig is doing drugs. Like, a lot of drugs. Hard drugs. "Permanent Midnight" is his memoir of this period and while you could describe it as harrowing, Stahl adopts a rather inappropriate jaunty tone that makes it hard to take seriously. He mostly comes off as a jerk with little regard for anyone else. He has a kid and titles one chapter "Huggies 'n' Heroin." Hilarious. You can only read so many of these books before wondering what the point is. Yeah, you did a lot of drugs. Big deal. Made into a decent film with Ben Stiller as Stahl.
