Reviews

The Ice Age offers something never before attempted by an Australian author: it investigates the allure and popularity of the illicit drug crystal methamphetamine, while simultaneously charting the writer's spiral into addiction and "full-blown psychosis" at age 34 ... a vivid, detailed and balanced account of methamphetamine use [and] a remarkable, original and compelling journey. To quote the king of gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson: buy the ticket, take the ride. - Andrew McMillen, Weekend Australian;The Ice Age takes the reader deep inside the grim, delusional world of addiction, veering vertiginously back and forth between Williams' own story and his journalistic investigation ... His slow, tortuous journey into self-awareness and recovery will confirm all your worst fears about what ice does to people and how hard the addiction can be to shake. - Fiona Capp, The Age;Compelling and horrifying ...If your head has been buried in the sand about ice, it won't be after reading this. - Geelong Advertiser;A thoughtful and detailed investigation of the ice problem in Australia. - Graeme Barlow, Daily Post;[The Ice Age] couldn't have arrived at a better moment ... Honest, detailed and, at times, shockingly raw. [PICK OF THE WEEK] - James Belfield, Dominion Post Weekend
