I ve read several memoirs about addiction but what makes Chancers different is that it alternates between the viewpoints of the addict Graham Macindoe and his girlfriend Susan Stellin Stellin a reporter met Macindoe a photographer in Montauk NY but it was nearly three years later when she asked him to photograph her professionally for the travel book she had just written Several months later the two reconnect and begin an almost accidental relationship However Graham is hiding from Susan that he is addicted to heroin A talented photographer he soon gets to the point that he s not working at all At first supportive Susan finally withdraws from the day to day challenges of trying to cure an addict yet she remains always on the fringe of his life Finally hitting rock bottom Graham is arrested for possession and sent to Rikers Island where he serves his time Macindoe born in Scotland and not yet a naturalized citizen learns that his conviction for a drug offense makes him subject to deportation Through a stroke of luck Susan re enters Macindoe s life just when he needs it the most This is a fascinating story of addiction and the lengths that people will go to to help one another The alternating viewpoints is an effective way of letting the reader see the story from both sides It is an honest account of how ugly addiction can be both for the addict and those who love himher On another note If you re so inclined Mr Mcindoe took pictures of himself in the throes of addiction and those photos are available online Thanks to the authors the publisher and NetGalley for an ARC of this book I loved it and will recommend it as a book of 2016

Chancers Characters ó 102 Ometimes akin to fighters in the ring tell the story of their lives as MacIndoe rides a roller coaster life of drug addiction and prison   It is a remarkable nine year parallel journey that forced them to bare their innermost thoughts and feelings forced them to distance themselves and finally forced them to recognize that a life even in the depths of despair merits saving   Chancers grabs in a voyeuristic way and propels page turning to find out what happens next in a saga no soap opera could create” The Buffalo News “Emotionally resonant and evenly structured their tandem chronicle resists overly romanticizing their bittersweet interactions to focus on the dedication and devotion necessary to make their already complicated relationship survive the fallout of critical hardships An emotionally complex and intensely personal binary memoir of addiction and sustainable love” Kirkus Reviews From the Hardcover editio. I won this book as a giveaway on Goodreads and I m so happy that I finally got the chance to finish it I am a recovering alcoholic so I love any memoir type book about alcoholismaddiction I love how this book gives the perspective of both Graham and Susan Both viewpoints are so important with this disease because the addicts perception is SO skewed when they are in the disease We don t realize what we are putting other people through and this is a great example of that I really liked this book a lot and I plan on recommending it to my friends

Chancers Characters ó 102 In this powerful memoir of addiction prison and recovery a reporter and a photographer tell their gripping story of falling in love the heroin habit that drove them apart and the unlikely way a criminal conviction brought them back togetherLitHub Best Book of the Month When Susan Stellin asked Graham MacIndoe to shoot her author photo for an upcoming travel book she barely knew him except for a few weekends with mutual friends at a summer house in Montauk He was a gregarious divorced Scotsman who had recently gotten sober; she was an independent New Yorker who decided to take a chance on a rough around the edges guy But their relationship was soon tested when Susan discovered that Graham still had a drug habit he was hiding   From their harrowing portrayal of the ravages of addiction to the stunning chain of events that led to Graham’s arrest and imprisonment at Rikers Island Chancers unfolds in alternating chapters th. 35I m greedy for juice and a memoir about addiction should have plenty We have prison juice and junkie juice yum But then we also have a Girl Scout trying to earn her humanitarian badge which is pretty damn juiceless no matter how you slice itThis book is uniue and clever it s a two person memoir with alternating chapters for each The Scottish photographer druggie Graham tells his story and the journalist rescuer Susan tells hers I loved the somewhat suspenseful beginning Secrets and lies hopefulness and innocence the pull of addiction different realities But the big middle where the two of them are not involved sagged for me I found myself bored every time it was Susan s turn And although Graham s story was way interesting drugs and prison oh yes I m thinking he must have been too stoned out to remember much because he talks without a lot of passionWhich leads me to the voice Susan s reporter chops were on full display here and that s both good and bad The good part is that the writing is damn smooth damn fine and it s conversational and not pretentious The bad part is that there isn t much emotion if you re reporting facts you usually have to filter out the feelings so that you stay credible The problem here is we re talking about a relationship where juice should abound we re talking about the ugliness of addiction we re talking about prison we re talking about juice all over the place But in this book No juice But to make matters worse Susan writes Graham s story for him so we get pure Reporter Susan voice I get it She s the writer so she is in charge She wants it to be a smooth read But for me it didn t feel right to have him talking away in the same tone as her I know they struggled with this problem In the endearing epilogue which I absolutely loved partly because it talked about their collaborative writing process Susan said Graham would complain But that doesn t sound like me So I should just look at it as her helping him tell his story not putting words in his mouth Call me weird but I loved how Graham described a time when he shot up It was so vivid and detailed I felt like I was peeking out from the closet as he prepared the needle shot up and then went to heaven Way creepy I don t think I would have made a good junkie when they do a blood draw I have to close my eyes tight and still look away Little details like seeing dots of blood from his needles on his bills really added to the sad picture of what his life had becomeThe parts I liked best were the prison scenes I ve read a lot of books about addiction but I haven t read about a junkie in jail A whole new world to me and it grabbed me Graham s fascinating recounting of his months long stints in prison had just the right amount of detail and horror to keep me riveted All of the intense bureaucratic and unfair shit he had to go through made me cringe Reading this definitely pressed my Injustice button I m feeling a little mean here but really Susan is just too goody two shoes for me And yes what she does for Graham wins her the humanitarian award of the year but still I felt like she was way too perfect and way too braggy and I don t think she really understands addiction She s so damn sueaky clean I want to go get drunk and smoke cigarettes view spoilerDon t get me wrong she DID or less save his life and Graham was so damn lucky to have her as his crusader If I were in Graham s position I sure as hell would want an angelic Susan on my team I have to remember how impressive it was that little miss fixer got his ass out of jail Seriously without her whole different story whole different continent hide spoiler
