Oran Canfield--son of self-help guru and Chicken Soup for the Soul creator Jack Canfield--tells his surreal story of growing up in Long Past Stopping. In this remarkable memoir, writing with a wry and cutting edge, Canfield relates tales of a childhood in flux--being buffeted about among family friends, relatives, rebels, and born-again circus clowns, in an anarchist private school, communes, and libertarian enclaves--and of a young adulthood spent among the ruins of heroin addiction. Long Past Stopping is Oran Canfield's often hilariously harrowing tale of surviving life in the strange lane.

Great book, tantamount in weirdness to Augusten Burroughs' "Running with Scissors", with a slightly more surrealistic drug angle. His treatment at the end, and the "hallucinations" he experienced at that treatment centre, are images that will stay with me.
