PRAISE FOR SIRENS

 

"THIS IS THE KIND OF BOOK THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO GRAB STRANGERS AT BUS STOPS AND SCREAM AT THEM TO READ."

- Jerry Stahl


"FAST AND FASCINATING AS THE LIFE IT CHRONICLES. IT'S ALSO A BLUEPRINT FOR HOW TO REBUILD A LIFE YOU'VE BURNED DOWN. A PAEAN TO THE REDEMPTIVE POWER OF LOVE AND ART."

- JUSTIN ST. GERMAIN


"What sets this book apart is Mohr's unwillingness to traffic in pat notions of redemption: he cleans up, sure. But he also takes pains to remind us that the monster is always lurking, ever-patient, waiting for the right moment to show it's face and seek release." 

- Ron Currie, Jr.


 

“By turns raw and tender, [Sirens] celebrates the power of love while offering an uncensored look at the frailties that can define people. An entirely candid, compelling memoir of addiction and the long, fraught road of recovery”

— KIRKUS REVIEWS


“MOHR’S HONESTY IN THIS BOOK IS ASTONISHING AND NECESSARY. HIS CANDOR ABOUT HITTING BOTTOM AND RELAPSING IS DEEPLY MOVING AND IMPORTANT. IT’S A HELL OF A COMPELLING READ.” 

— CARI LUNA
