Dependency, Paperback / softback Book

Dependency Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series


Tove is only twenty, but she's already famous, a published poet and wife of a much older literary editor.

Her path in life seems set, but she has no idea of the struggles that lie ahead - love affairs, an unwanted pregnancy, physical pain and crippling opioid addiction.

As the years go by, the central tension of Tove's life comes into painful focus: the terrible lure of dependency, in all its forms, and the possibility of living life freely and fearlessly - as an artist on her own terms.

The final volume in Ditlvesen's autobiographical trilogy and perhaps her masterpiece, Dependency is a dark and blisteringly honest account of addiction, and the way out.
