Watching Loius Theroux tonight has reminded me of a book but I cant for the life of me think who wrote it or what its called.

Its a true-tory of an American woman who spent a good part of her life addicted to drugs - her mum died when she was little and she spent alot of time in foster care. She becomes part of a gang and gets shot, then grows up still addicted to drugs. I remember parts of it so clearly but I dont think I actually finished it.

It was a big hit at the time, I am sure some clever MNetter will know exactly what I am talking about

It isn't lullabies for little criminals is it?

I have looked up lullabies for little criminals on Amazon and it looks very good - might have to treat myself
