Literary Rogues

And here you thought rockers and actors were the only ones with lavish drug and sex addictions to write about. Literary Rogues: A Scandalous History of Wayward Authors ($10) looks at those writers who did battle with inner demons on a grand, and thus historically notable, scale. Starting with the Marquis de Sade and continuing all the way up through Hunter S. Thompson, Bret Easton Ellis, and even the infamous James Frey, it provides an entertaining yet startling look at the way outlandish behavior and literary genius have often been linked.
