It’s one thing when an author gets a spot for a reading at Auntie’s, but it’s another when her fan base books the gig and flies her out themselves. Such is the case with Amy Dresner, author of My Fair Junkie, subtitled “a memoir of getting dirty and staying clean.” Dresner’s 2017 debut novel details her story of addiction, going from an upper-class college kid with a rich father in Beverly Hills, to “dabbling in meth,” to a two-year stint in the big house. Dresner’s book is described as “darkly funny” and “unfortunately completely true.” “I’m just a former junkie who wrote a book,” she says.
