sometimes he opens up the capsules and snorts the powder Sometimes he feels suicidal He lives in San Francisco and has a string of often undefined blurry relationships with women Sometimes they tie him up beat him cut himHe thinks back to his youth as a runaway and tries to make sense of his adversarial relationship with his father And he goes to Oakland every day for months to watch the trial of Hans Reiser a Linux programmer accused of murdering his estranged wife The Adderall Diaries was meant to be a true crime book but it turned into a memoir True crime authors don’t usually let their own lives into the story do they But the end result here is truth it’s honesty Every writer has a personal reaction to what he or she documents; the difference is that Elliott acknowledges his and allows it to take centre stage if it needs to It’s refreshing that he abandons the pretence of keeping his subject matter at arm’s length Hans Reiser’s story links in with his own story with his father’s story with other people’s stories ex girlfriends who’ve moved on to conventional lives childhood friends who overdosed on heroin or got sent to jail for murder Hans Reiser may have been the starting point of the book he may be its unifying thread but in the end it’s not exactly about himI’m on a short trip to York I stay somewhere different every night I get abuse for being American even though I’m not and a stranger gives me a lift in his car One day I trek round the city aimlessly for hours try to sleep on a park bench I get off with a boy and it’s awkward and he feels weird and I do too and then it’s too late to know what to say I act like it isn’t the fourth anniversary of my mother’s death And I read The Adderall Diaries and Elliott’s voice echoes and I see parts of myself only parts because just as there are places where Hans Reiser’s story connects with his there are those where Elliott’s story connects with mine One passage in particular remains with me long after reading it Elliott is trying to have a 'normal' relationship reassuringly mundane he describes it An ex lover tells him about a man whose desires are so masochistic he’s had to accept that he will probably never have a real partner; he must get used to being alone Elliott excuses himself bursts into tears in a supermarket His relationship does not lastI discuss the book with a sex worker She says Some of my clients are into such specific things If they were ueer they’d have no problem being accepted They’d find enough people who were okay with their desires They’re good people and it makes me sad that it’s so hard for them I think about how statistically so many people are straight and yet there’s a better chance of acceptance broadly speaking within ueer circles I think about how hard it must be for straight people who don’t have access to a supportive communityAfter my encounter in York I feel like I’ve just messed with someone’s boundaries but I’m not entirely sure what I’ve done wrong or whether I’m imagining it to be worse than it really is I wonder if it’s cost me what could have been a good friendship All the conversation flowed so easily and then suddenly it slowed down and became unrecognisable like a familiar tape being chewed up by a cassette player Sometimes when that happens it feels like I have to gamble say something or don’t and no words I can come up with will fill the space adeuately It’ll always be either too much or too little I’m not particularly looking for a meaningful relationship or a future with someone; I’m content with the path I’m already on which is full of surprises My stories usually involve undefined relationships people who are than friends and I have learned not to need to name whatever's going on between us Yet all the same I can taste Elliott’s despair when he considers that maybe he won’t find someone who’s really compatible with himThese are the things I think about while I’m in York and reading The Adderall Diaries amplifies them Elliott’s writing is raw confessional and addictive It draws you in He flits between the present and the past but his timeline is sufficiently clear to avoid confusion His life has been unorthodox shall we say from the start but he doesn't seek to present himself as special doesn't romanticise it though he acknowledges the adolescent bravado that made it tolerable I think about my own teenage years I drank but I didn't get into trouble and I didn't take any real risks But I was sixteen the first time somebody told me they'd killed someone when I felt something shift away from my comfortable middle class upbringing my drama free home I learned to just observe to not ask awkward uestions If I'd asked those uestions would I still have been safeThere are many differences between Elliott and I But I have complications going on too and it’s a learning process figuring out what I’m okay with what it’s safe to express Sometimes I feel disconnected I’m looking at an uncertain future and I’m trying to be upbeat about it to see it all as an exciting adventure This is where I’m at drifting reading a book by someone who’s drifting too

stuff like this doesn't happen in the real world but stuff like this does happen in the real world and there are writers who stay up all night to tell it at the same time elliott is also involved with dude #1 on a personal level they are both sadomasochists elliott doesn't link his sadomasochism explicitly to his hair raising childhood but the connection is not far from the surface so stories of elliott's childhood pop up regularly in the narrative often they are the same stories though details are added the stories get and brutal elliott has terrible moments in which he doubts his own stories in other moments he belittles their seriousness it was only that one time i didn't have it as bad as other people things got okay after a bit and you want to reach out across the pages and the publisher and walls and gates that keep you from stephen elliott and say to him no stephen you had it really shitty my friend so so shitty there are girls many girls elliott sleeps with some but not much he is not into sex he's into being hurt being hurt feels good he doesn't do seriously hard core SM or so he tells us; i don't dare think what seriously hard core SM looks like but he finds tremendous solace in being given pain and then being comforted at some point in the middle of a beating session one of his girlfriends says she's going to go to the bathroom to wash her hands and elliott seriously freaks out don't go she doesn't go at the writing of this book stephen elliott is 35 36 the book is about the writing of itself it's also about the life elliott lives while not writing the book and the memories all the torturous hellish memories of loves had and lost of abandonments and group homes and psychiatric hospitals and violence endured and endured and endured stephen elliott's father is a mean abusive unmoored man by the end of the book elliott realizes that he loves this man why he loves him is not explained to us and rightly so elliott is savvy about feelings he does not analyze them much; he presents them as innocently and vulnerably as can be done though you know that a lot of work goes into this presentation to wit many scenes are pruned to their bare bones and it would be nice if they were pruned less it would be nice to have words the sentences and the words are lovely but it would nice to have less choppiness elliott is afraid of saying too much of failing to see in the book's reviews words like taut and sparse i wish he hadn't worried so much it's okay to go on a little longer to wit cities change constantly often we don't know if we are in san francisco or chicago the fact that we don't know the city doesn't enrich the narrative it's okay to say then i went to chicagoelliott rarely sleeps in his bed it's hard to keep track of where he is staying at any given time but he has a job and job assignments and he is a writer and a journalist as some point you nail it he is sharing an apartment finally but he doesn't spend much time in it the marvel of this book is that it's about writing it's about writing with a demon riding your back the demon whips you within an inch of your life and this is where you produce your best writing by the end of the book elliott has eased up on the adderall but we have learned so much about him we feel it would be nothing absolutely nothing to ask him to come and crash on our couch for a night or two and if he did it would be nothing absolutely nothing to ask him man are you okay
