Candy - Luke Davies

'There is only heroin, there is only Candy, the three of us adrift on the endless sea of love. '

Candy is a love story. It is also a harrowing investigation of the raw heart of addiction; its claustrophobia and momentum. From the heady narcissism of the narrator's first days with his new lover, Candy, and the relative innocence of their shared habit, Candy charts their decline when smack becomes the total and only focus of their lives.
