Night Navigation PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Night Navigation free pdf Through the four seasons, "Night Navigation" takes us into the deranged, darkly humorous world of the addict - from break-your-arm dealers to boot-camp rehabs to Rumi-quoting NA sponsors. Al-Anon tells Del to 'let go'- NAMI tells her to 'hang on'. Mark cannot find a way to live in this world. Del cannot stop trying to rescue him. And yet, during this long year's night, through relapse and despair, they see flares of hope as Mark and Del fitfully, painfully try to steer toward the light. Told in the alternating voices of an addict and his mother, this riveting novel adds new depth to our understanding and our literature of parents and their troubled children.
