To Hell And Back
A Life in Addiction and Recovery in Poem
by Steven L. Massé




Do you know what it’s like to go to hell and back? For those of us who live through addiction, the experience is all too familiar. This was the fate of author Steven L. Massé, who spent the whole of his adult life—and much of his childhood—in an infernal battle with his addiction to alcohol, fighting for his very life. Beginning when he had his first drink at age twelve, this staggering collection of poems recounts the torment Massé endured in facing this demon, time and time again, on his unlikely road to recovery. Penned from his hospital bed after yet another harrowing encounter with his alcoholism, these poems shed light on the grueling but necessary path to sobriety—even in the unlikeliest of circumstances. For the millions who find themselves in addiction hell—and the millions more who love them—this collection is sure to make a heartening source of compassion, comfort, and commiseration.
