A literary exploration of the pleasures and pains of heroin takes readers inside the rundown Geronimo Hotel near the Tucson desert to reveal a heroin-addicted, dream-filled world and the eccentric and often desperate characters who inhabit it.

Blackwell North Amer
"Junk addiction is like an obsession with an unrequited love," writes Scott Frank, who spent the better part of a year chasing his own love among the shaded porticoes of the pink-stuccoed, gloriously rundown Geronimo Hotel at the edge of the Tucson desert. The author was not alone, and in this beautifully written, evocative book he treats us to an insider's look at this heroin-addicted, dream-filled world and the eccentric and often desperate characters who inhabit it.
Tales from the Geronimo is an eloquent story and a starkly true portrait of the lowest levels of the drug world.
