Read Review

Harris Wittels was an incredibly successful comedy writer/performer on shows such as Parks and Recreation, and he was about to launch his acting career to a new level on his friend Aziz Anzari's new show Master of None. He came from a loving, close-knit family and was blessed with friends and financial success. Yet at the age of 30, he ends up dying of a heroin overdose after several unsuccessful attempt at rehab.
This memoir of his life and death, narrated by his sister and author Stephanie Wittels Wachs, is so brutal, raw, and intimate. Cliched as it may sound, this book made me both laugh out loud and cry. And whether or not you've lost someone to a drug overdose, it is impossible not to empathize with her grief over losing her brother so tragically. I'd highly recommend listening to the audio version. Like her brother, Wittels Wachs comes from a theater background, and her narration breathes so much life into Harris.
