Anmeldelser

«An urgent, eye-opening look at a problem that promises to grow much worse in the face of inaction and indifference»

Kirkus Reviews

«Macy potently mixes statistics and hard data with tragic stories of individual sufferers, as well as those who love and attempt to treat them... Forceful and comprehensive'»

Publishers Weekly

«A crucial and many-faceted look at a still-unfolding national crisis... A timely and necessary read'»

Booklist

«Essential to understanding not just the epidemic of opioid addiction and death, but also how America and Big Pharma work... Macy's narrative is a mosaic of suffering and bereavement'»

Literary Review

«A shocking investigation... [Dopesick] is essential. The urgency of its message is compounded by the fact that as I write this, the latest figures show the number of deaths in England and Wales due to the synthetic opioid fentanyl rose by 29 per cent in 2017'»

The Times

«Essential reading... Macy follows one specific drug through the range of problems it has caused, the people it has hurt, the difficulties in fighting it and the glimmers of hope that remain'»

Janet Maslin, New York Times

«Beth Macy's powerful work of reportage... Dopesick goes to the heart of one of the most urgent problems of our time'»

The Tablet

«A gripping, heartbreaking and enraging tale of ruined lives and the corporate greed that led to a nationwide epidemic of painkiller addiction»

The Oldie.

«Macy's reportage shows how unscrupulous drug companies helped to hook America on painkillers. Drugs are the leading cause of death for the under-fifties, above guns and car accidents; Macy puts human faces on to the grim statistics»

The Times, Books of the Year.

«Macy's harrowing account of the opioid epidemic, in which hundreds of thousands have already died, masterfully interlaces stories of communities in crisis with dark histories of corporate greed and regulatory indifference»

New York Times, Books of the Year

«Beth Macy seeks the very hearts of the people who are running the long marathons of struggle and survival – of Life. Dopesick is another deep – and deeply needed – look into the troubled soul of America»

Tom Hanks

«Comprehensive, compassionate and forceful. No matter what you already know about the opioid crisis, its toughness and intimacy make it a must' New York Times, Critics»

Picks of the Year

«An unflinching look at the opioid crisis in the US... Truly shocking in some places, Dopesick is a wake-up call for doctors and the pharmaceutical industry'»

British Journal of General Practice

«Shifting effortlessly between the socio-political and the personal, Macy weaves a complex tale that unfolds with all the pace of a thriller, her deep journalism – interviews with dealers, police officers, activists, local politicians as well as users and their families – matched by a sense of barely suppressed anger at what is happening... It may make you weep; it will almost certainly make you angry'»

Observer

«I've read a few books about the opioid crisis in America and this might be the best... [Macy] does a brilliant job. [She] follows the epidemic – from the pharmaceutical industry to the doctors, the drug dealers, the victims. She gets it all'»
