We watch her resorting to every vile device, trading herself, body and soul for the drugs she had to have..." Originally issued as a digest-sized paperback in 1951, the novel served as Exhibit A in Congressman Ezekiel C. Gathings's House Select Committee on the proliferation of literature he considered a pox on American society, refering to the novel as "A Manual of Instruction for Potential Narcotic Addicts."
