Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Once upon a time, opium (the main ingredient of heroine) was easily available over the chemist's counter. The secret of happiness, about which philosophers have disputed for so many ages, could be bought for a penny, and carried in the waistcoat pocket: portable ecstasies could be corked up in a pint bottle. Paradise? So thought Thomas de Quincey, but he soon discovered nobody will laugh long who deals much with opium.
