About the book:
In this dark, harrowing, and gripping memoir which details a drug addiction that almost killed her, Suki Jones writes with a raw immediacy and refreshing candor about not only being dependent on drugs, but keeping that dependency a secret from her family and friends. Set against the backdrop of the Bay Area in the early '90s, Jones balances motherhood and modeling with deft precision
A ferocious memoir about broken family history, sexual abuse, and debilitating addiction, Sea, Swallow Me vividly wanders through the decade with a fiery resolve which ultimately reveals how Jones survived when she shouldn't have. Sea, Swallow Me is a powerful and redemptive tale of resilience and redemption.
