Don Nolan, a writer living in New Orleans, Louisiana, with his wife and their puppy, has completed his new book “Poisoned Apple: The Weeping Man”: an unfiltered nonfiction account of the author’s descent into drug fed manias, often resulting in altercations with other addicts or the police. The book, however, does not portray addicts as heroes of the story; as the author examines the events in his own life that lead to his becoming an addict, he realizes that most people have experienced deeply traumatic events that leave lasting impressions, sometimes only abated by the escape that a drug can provide.

“What else can I say?” Don Nolan said when asked to comment on his road to recovery. “I cried black teardrops. A hustler’s fake tears through years of drug addiction. All the lying to loved ones, cheating, stealing, in and out of different prisons. I taught myself how to do time like a real career criminal. One point in my life, though, a long time ago, I was a good kid. Played sports, had lots of good friends, came from a prominent family. Then, a big bad wolf came into my life, a child molester, and that truly messed me up.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Don Nolan’s heart wrenching tale is told through powerful prose, packed with details of the author’s all-American upbringing, lucid descriptions of the highs and lows of his later life as an outsider, and a heartfelt tale of redemption as Don attempts to right the wrongs of his past and put his best foot forward.

To experience the ride of the author’s lifetime, and to learn more about the life of those afflicted with addiction, readers can purchase “Poisoned Apple: The Weeping Man” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
