Publisher's Summary

In the spring of 2007, a brilliant computer programmer named Hans Reiser stands accused of murdering his estranged wife, Nina. Despite a mountain of circumstantial evidence against him, he proclaims his innocence. The case takes a twist when Nina’s former lover, and Hans’s former best friend, Sean Sturgeon, confesses to eight unrelated murders that no one has ever heard of. At the time of Sturgeon’s confession, Stephen Elliot is paralyzed by writer’s block, in the thrall of Adderall dependency, and despondent over the state of his romantic life. But he is fascinated by Sturgeon, whose path he has often crossed in San Francisco’s underground S&M scene. What kind of person, he wonders, confesses to a murder he likely did not commit? One answer is, perhaps, a man like Elliott’s own father.

    "Interesting book, though not for everyone"
    What did you love best about The Adderall Diaries?

    I liked the view into a world I don't normally see, the author's clever connections and imagery, and his use of short, choppy passages, like one would expect from someone with ADD. I liked the story, but there was a lot left out and in the end it felt unfinished, like the author's life.


    What three words best describe Jason Butler Harner’s voice?

    Somewhat bored. Monotone. But I think he was trying to convey the deadened or numb feeling the author was trying to convey. The author writes with seen-it-all detachment, and I think the vocals were meant to portray that.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a reasonably good book and will read another by the author to see if he uses the same repeatitive themes, or whether he explores new ground.
