New Junk Essay: Detox by Barry Grass

We have something really special this month from Barry Grass.

When we began discussing what we wanted from Junk, what sort of themes it ought to tackle, the editorial staff here in the lofty heights of Junk Headquarters had hoped to offer readers something different. Something about addiction you can’t find anywhere else. So when Barry’s lyrical essay showed up in our inbox, we were pleased. And there was much rejoicing. You think addiction is all about the addict, but that’s just not true. Never was. Like a pebble tossed into the lake, like a crack in windshield, addiction races outward, in ever increasing circles and fissures.

From the point of view of the virtuous professionals that keep the wheels turning in Detox, this month’s story opens our Winter 2011 issue.
