Jack Sutherland has, you might say, led a charmed life in the face of seeming damnation. After a childhood spent in London, his family moved to California and by his twenties Jack was PA and bodyguard to the Hollywood stars – most notably Michael Stipe, RuPaul and Mickey Rourke. His work took him around the world and led to bizarre encounters and requests, but also lured him into a smorgasbord of addictions. Eventually Jack was saved by his father, John Sutherland, one of the literary world’s most esteemed figures, and the co-author of this book. Stars, Cars and Crystal Meth is a sensational memoir written with inspiring honesty.
‘An extraordinarily frank memoir . . . sensational and eye-wateringly candid.’
‘One of the funniest and least self-righteous works on addiction that I have read in a long while.’
‘A buoyant and almost gonzo tone infiltrates many of the hair-whitening anecdotes.’
‘A remarkable catalogue of vice and self-destruction, full of unexpected anecdotes – some funny, some exhilarating and some downright unpleasant.’
