Overview
Sharply funny and compulsively readable, The Gilded Razor is a "powerful addition to the literature of active addiction and recovery" (New York Times bestselling author Bill Clegg) from debut author Sam Lansky.

The Gilded Razor is the true story of a double life that New York Times bestselling author George Hodgman called "virtuosic." By the age of seventeen, Sam Lansky was an all-star student with Ivy League aspirations in his final year at an elite New York City prep school. But a nasty addiction to prescription pills spiraled rapidly out of control, compounded by a string of reckless affairs with older men, leaving his bright future in jeopardy. After a terrifying overdose, he tried to straighten out. Yet as he journeyed from the glittering streets of Manhattan, to a wilderness boot camp in Utah, to a psych ward in New Orleans, he only found more opportunities to create chaos--until finally, he began to face himself.

In the vein of Elizabeth Wurtzel and Augusten Burroughs, Lansky scrapes away at his own life as a young addict and exposes profoundly universal anxieties. Told with remarkable sensitivity, biting humor, and unrelenting self-awareness, The Gilded Razor is a coming-of-age story of searing honesty and lyricism and "one of the best portraits about the implacable power of addiction" (Susan Cheever, bestselling author of Drinking in America).
