|Summary, etc.:||In this masterful work, Beth Macy takes us into an epicenter of America's twenty-plus year struggle with opioid addiction. The first to chart the tragic spread of prescription and street drugs from distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs, disparate cities, and once-idyllic farm towns, a trajectory that explains how the crisis persisted for so long and became so entrenched.|
