If you are interested in the arcane, the occult, the erotic or the highs and lows of drug addiction, then this book is for you. A piece of fiction inspired by Crowley's own experience of drugs and first published in 1922, Diary of a Drug Fiend follows Sir Peter Pendragon, a veteran pilot of World War I, who comes into money and saves himself from life-sapping indolence by marrying Louise Laleham, a devotee of the occultist Basil King Lamus. The couple marry and leave for Europe on honeymoon, then return to England to fight their demons as the book paints a vivid picture of their love set against a lifestyle of decadence, addiction and 'magick'. An uplifting and inspiring work of literary genius. Provides insight into the truth about drug-taking as well as psychological insight into the mind of an addict. A must-read for those interested in the occult. 'We must conquer life by living it to the full, and then we can go to meet death with a certain prestige.' Aleister Crowley--Provided by publisher.
