In  this eye-opening memoir, Lisa Crystal Carver recalls her extraordinary  youth and charts the late-80s, early-90s punk subculture that she helped  shape. She recounts how her band Suckdog was born in 1987 and the wild  events that followed: leaving small-town New Hampshire to tour Europe at  18, becoming a teen publisher of fanzines, a teen bride, and a teen  prostitute. Spin has called Suckdog’s album Drugs Are Nice one of the best of the ’90s, and the book includes photos of infamous  European shows. Yet the book also tells of how Lisa saw the need for  change in 1994, when her baby was born with a chromosomal deletion and  his father became violent. With lasting lightness and surprising  gravity, Drugs Are Nice is a definitive account of the  generation that wanted to break every rule, but also a story of an  artist and a mother becoming an adult on her own terms.
