Empire of pain

 The blog has been very quiet but I am putting my toes in the water again. We'll see how it goes.

The book I read over Christmas was one of the most compelling things I've read in a long time. It's called Empire of Pain and tells the story of the Sackler Family. A tale of brilliance, greed, power, deceit, denial and much besides. Won lots of accolades and they are all deserved. Stunning stuff.

 I recommend the read but Dopesick tells the story- just out on Disney +
