A quick summary
For many years, Sigrid Rausing’s brother Hans and his wife Eva struggled with catastrophic drug addictions, and despite wealth and many kinds of privilege they were unable to stave off the mayhem that engulfed them and their family. When Eva died from a drug overdose, it was a national news story. Rausing wrote this book to piece together what happened – so, as her father said, “it won’t be just fragments, like a dream”. In looking back, she adds layers of understanding and insight to the chaos and pain that overtook them all – and extends a hand to anyone who has been caught up in addictions.
