By Some Miracle I Made It Out Of There

BY SOME MIRACLE I MADE IT OUT OF THERE, Simon & Schuster, April 9, 2013

Tom Sizemore has been called many things. Brilliant. Brutal. Fiercely talented. Angry. Drug addicted. In reality, he’s all of them. He’s a survivor of the Detroit ghetto, the forty-eight-year-old father of twin boys, and a veteran of dozens of movies. He’s also now sober, after his addiction took his life as far down, arguably, as any human being could go. Like Beautiful Boy or Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man, this is a harrowing journey into the heart of addiction. And like Rob Lowe’s Stories I Only Tell My Friends, it’s one man’s look at a particular moment in entertainment history—a window into the drug-fueled spotlight that killed River Phoenix and sent Robert Downey, Jr., to jail.
